A nice attraction for people who like to know more about the brazilian skies

This attraction has daily sessions with topics related to the astronomy, and fair prices. Unfortunately, there are only portuguese spoken sessions without subtitles.

Despite I went with two grown up sons, the story they presented with the lessons about the sky were great! Planning to go with the grandsons.

We went there on a Thursday morning. The place was full and the exhibit is fantastic. A trip in the sky... Highly recommend. Get there early as the queue is big.

I've been going to the Planetarium since my childhood and it even today never fails to amaze me. Depending on the season the planetarium has several shows, one of them always about the current night sky (which is not visible within the city otherwise).
