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

Lovely looking place and it has quite a few evening expositions available. Set in a lovely location amidst the city's green area. Worth a visit...

See it at night. i know, that sounds superfluous to see a planetarium at night, but it is lit up with bright blue/purple bands of lighting that make it special to see on the outside at night, too. Very cool.

You need to speak/understand Spanish to go here. Tickets go on sale every day at 10:30am and cannot be prebooked or prebought, which I thought was pretty poor. Go early to avoid missing out.
