This is not a tourist attraction for non-Spanish speakers. The planetarium itself is very small, offering little outside of the shows. There is a very small "museum" with maybe 10-12 interesting displays, but that won't take more than 15-20 mins to see. The real attractions here are the shows, which were outstanding- but again, completely in Spanish. So if you... More

We went to Planetario Galileo Galilei because it was one of the closest attractions to our hostel in Palermo. We saw a half an hour COLISIONES CÓSMICAS and it was stunning even we do not speak Spanish. The museum is very small and not that interesting but show was worth to see. Consider to visit when you are near (Japanese... More

It is old but if you are a big fan of the rock band "soda stereo" you will enjoy the view as one of the most famous videos of the band was recorded in this place, try to find the video in youtube, the name of the song "zoom"

The structure itself was rundown, shabby and dirty, and the facility was closed although there were no signs explaining why or when it would reopen, not that such a decsaying building held much appeal.

if you've been to Disneyworld this may be obsolete I think it's a nice experience for children and adults too. I think is a nice choice to watch tango shows and theater plays in a planetary. A good traveler has an open mind and accept what each country, each city has to offer without expectations or comparison otherwise stay at... More

We didn't stop for the show but looked around the hands-on demos, which were well-worn. May be worth a stop if you're into this sort of thing. If you're not, move on.

The entrance closes at 7:30pm, so hurry up lest you'll miss it. The observation depends on the weather, so when it's clouded, forget it! Still, the lit up building at night is even more beautiful than during the day. Don't miss.

The surrounding grounds are old and not in great shape but the seating area in the actual planetarium and the show are fantastic. We don't speak Spanish and we still enjoyed it. As long as you know "sol" is "sun" you will be fine! Right next to zoo and a park.

I've heard so many good things about this place (hence the rating). However, my friend and I tried to go (12/28/13) and there was a sign outside of the entrance of the planetarium stating that it's undergoing its annual maintenance until January 17, 2014. We were really sad about it, but hopefully we'll see it in the future. Just an... More
