“Good add on to Medellin's activities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A nice new building, small but nonetheless good place to go with kids or adults. I think kids 6-7+ will enjoy the attractions. The dome function has been totally renewed, a spheric (ellipsoid) dome is better, a nice show by the NYM of Natural History narrated in spanish with some english titles, a whole new experience, showing various degrees of separation (planets, galaxies, cumulus). Not expensive, you can get there by subway, which stops right by the door. Is next to Jardin Botanico (botanical gardens) and Parque explora (interactive museum).

“Renovations Underway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

The planetarium is impressive to see from the outside and immediately visible from the Universidados Metro station - is right beside it. Note that it is closed and under significant renovation until April, we were told by a site workman today.

Double check before visiting. Am sure it'll be great after the refurb.!

Note that I am rating high so as not to affect its average - we were not inside.
