Astronomy is the science that fascinates people of all ages. I love to visit the programmes of the planetarium both with friends and alone too. It is always wise to make a reservation in advance as the performances are very popular. The Exploratorium is open free of charge and visitors can admire the beauty of nebulas.

Tripadviser is the portal for fans of travelling worldwide. While in Brno you can travel further on as the Brno Observatory and Plantetarium can take you to the universe, to the Moon, to Mars, to many star nebulas. Concerning the pandemic situation and summer time visitors had an excellent opportunity to be (almost) in touch with objects that are hard to reach. I was lucky to be close to Mars and happy feeling enjoyed my friend Mirka as well. There was also a chance to watch a film including an intergalactic travelling topic. There are parts open to public free of charge, I mean the exploratorium plus the outside astro path. Have fun and upgrade your knowledge at the same time.

I have been an astronomy nerd for as long as I can remember, so I visited countless astronomy museums, observatories and planetariums all over the globe. The Planetarium in Brno stands out is one of the most memorable.

The beautiful building sets the expectations high and the inside honours the tone set by the outside appearance. Although the exhibition is not overwhelmingly expansive, it is extremely well done and just enjoyable. The views from the windows and the friendly staff make your visit simply enjoyable.

The dome shows are usually very well done utilising the power of the new digital system in a meaningful way. And if you do not come for the show, they offer public talks or even artistic performances.

I genuinely recommend to include the planetarium on your plan if you are going to spend just a few days in Brno.

I'm pretty interested in Astronomy, so was looking forward to visiting this place months in advance of our trip anyway! As other reviewers have said, it's really not geared up for foreigners. Over half of our time was spent listening to a guy speak Czech (they sold us the tickets to us knowing we couldn't speak Czech) whilst pointing out features on the night sky with a laser pointer, and the half that was in English was, somewhat bizarrely, not much to do with the night sky itself, but rather with observatories and with light pollution etc. Not deeply interesting.

We spent a good 20 minutes walking around in the stitching darkness through a park, just trying to find this place. It's not well sign-posted, and though it is close to a tram stop as the crow flies, there's no lighting in the park - so go during the day if you don't know the way already!

Unless they do something about the language barrier, I'd suggest that it's not worth going unless you can speak Czech.

I went in without knowing that much Czech, but the front desk worker was able to help me and I had a great experience. The planetarium show is really nice

I was in the planetarium with an organised group from Erasmus exchange. We had a show in English, which was very nice. I know that some displays are with English translation, some no - you have to check first. I really liked the place however, it's in the city - you won't see so much as in the planetariums outside the cities.

The staff were rude, ignorant and unhelpful.
The show did not involve us at all as we were tourists, it was boring, unengaging and we left early.
The information about where to go was wrong and it was an utter waste of time.

I have not been to a planetarium, in a while. But, I know 90's cgi when I see it. The facility was nice but it has seen better days. If they invested into some modern videos it would have been interesting to me. I was there just because I wanted to see if it had changed since I was last there and it was...

The locals, will support it, but the city should invest more into it as it is a Brno city landmark.

I didn´t ever imagine how fun space can be. But the enthusiasm in this building is incredible and it will just get under your skip. The exploratorium in the basement is put together with such a great concept and the digitarium is just mindblowing, though at some points the movie was moving in ways that actually made me feel sick from the stomach :D

And what is most mindblowing is the light-sound instalation on the outside. Simply? Do not miss out!

Although observatories are alike, this one is located close to public transport in a nice park. We have visited a 3D show we all are stars and it was very good including the introduction about a night sky and constellations.
