It was nice to visit it, there is variety but it is little. It takes half an hour to an hour to visit it. Worth a visit If you are ne-ar Sempione park.

Went for an exhibition on Dante, whom I adore, and it was incredible. If you like planetariums then this place is the place to go. Try to get high up seats or you might get a neck cramp looking, but that's the price you pay for accessible planetariums and star gazing.

If you visit on Tuesday after 1400 the entrance is free. The exhibition is all stuffed animal that are displayed beautiful in there natural settings. It's really nice to see so many different animals up close. Though there is no information on English. Don't expect a long visit, we saw everything after about 1 hour. Though it's a nice experience... More

They have some interesting lectures, but you need to speak/understand Italian. For popular lectures it is better to book in advance.

One of the oldest and largest planetariums of the world, it has fascinated me each time over the past 70 years. I was there with my grandchildren last year and it was even better than ever. To enjoy it fully, learn our beautiful language!

Nice place especially if you're interested in astronomy and there are events like 'Cinedreams' not to miss! After visiting here you can also pass to Natural History Museum which is just next to it and spend a day full of science ☺️

I've been at Planetario U. Hoepli to introduce my young nephew to astronomy. The special occasion was offered by a funny and interesting dramatization offered by some actors and the Planetarium Director during the Xmas period. The venue is dating back the thirties, with the original rotating wooden chairs. Not to be missed even if you're not an astronomy fan!

I dislike giving bad reviews but sometimes it has to be done. I visited this planetarium last week and it was the longest hour of my life. I have always been fascinated by astronomy but never have I been so bored. For the record, I speak Italian and understood the presentation. What you typically expect from a planetarium is an...
