Very good presentation. Need to have more English captions to read. Maybe have some on hands experience with the telescope and explain advantages of each and what might be the type to purchase. Have plan trips to darks night sky’s and have a star party. Have solar telescope set for viewing the sun and a hydrogen alpha person solar telescope set up for people to view the sun in real time. Maybe some more space science exhibits with some rockets on display. I am certain that NASA would be glad to furnish some for exhibits.

Things to do with children

This place is good to bring children. We watched a movie in the dome for about 30 min. This place is small you can do it in about 1 hour.

Through the planetarium shows, it is possible to link history, geography and the celestial bodies. Comfortable seating and well narrated!

The science behind space !
May 2019 • Friends
This is my first time ever in a Planetarium. We were super impressed by all the information that the guide inside had. I wish I could remember his name so he can get credit for a job well done (he was probably early 20s and had braces if that helps to describe who he is). His English was pretty well and if he couldn’t think of the world he would find another way to explain it until he could remember the word or we knew what it was. I love seeing somebody putting in so much effort. He seemed passionate talking about all the science behind space.
We watched the show in the dorm and it was so cool. They provided a headset for English translation which is always nice since my Spanish isn’t very good. It was super neat to hear the science behind stars and behind elements.
Unfortunately we got to the planetarium a bit late and wasn’t able to make it to the third floor. But I would love to go back and see it !

Planetarium
Mar 2019 • Family
Good visit, my kids were tired by the time we got here after spending the morning 10:30am-2pm at Parque Explora. We did a combo ticket totalled 40,000 Pesos for 1 person both attractions. But they perked up to play with the interactive exhibits. Great customer service, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Plenty of staff to help customers enjoy the interactive exhibits. There were signs in Spanish and English. The movie or Proyection, was all spanish, my 5 and 9 year old got a little restless during the movie but it was educational if you understand spanish.

Great experience

I was treated to a personal tour by one of the astronomers, Afterwards enjoyed the Friday evening presentation (in Spanish) and because it was a rare clear night also got to view Mars and the moon using two of their telescopes. Very enjoyable.

Planetario in Parque Explora by the University Metro--excellent!
Jan 2019 • Couples
We spent 5 hours; there are expert volunteers from the university who are physics majors and other--all very knowledgeable who will share incredible information with you...They are friendly, fun, and so up-to-date...Very interactive. We saw the "Maya Heavens" show in the Domo and it was wonderful; you don't need to know Spanish to appreciate it. Recommended highly. And the Jardin Botanico is right next to the Parque Explora.
