Neighborhood: Ibirapuera
Ibirapuera Park, the highlight of this neighborhood, is a family-friendly area to have a picnic, relax, play sports, exercise or appreciate art. It gets crowded during the weekends and is a popular leisure destination for residents. Its 1,584 square kilometers holds three lakes, two museums and several other cultural spaces. The park hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as free music concerts and a water and light show celebrating the holidays at the end of the year. There are two important monuments to visit, the Obelisk and the Flag Monument. Ibirapuera is a perfect escape!

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). During the off-season they offer a session on how to read sky-maps and give a bit of an intro into the projector followed by a night sky presentation. It's a great value and can and should be combined with a stroll through the Ibirapuera Park in which the planetarium is located.

Tickets are not sold by internet or phone, you need to arrive at least 1 hour before the exhibit starts in order to get a ticket, what is outrageous, considering adults are usually taking kids to the planetarium. Taking this into consideration, they should at least have a playground close, where parents could stay in line while kids play (there's the space).

Inside the observatory there way too many broken chairs, about 2 in every row of 6/7 chairs.

I've taken my kids (6 and 2 years old) to the 5pm exhibit. The small fell asleep (that was planned) and the bigger one thought it was ok, just ok. What could have been an amazing experience to instigate his curiosity was just an ok event, in my opinion they used too many specific words (without explaining the meaning) in an advanced theme. They should have focused on introducing the subject to younger people.

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.

Kudos for the people who work there. They are nice, helpful and inform everything you need to know. Unfortunately that's all what positive there. The sound is awful and it's very hard to understand the narrator says since music is played together with the explanations. Very little information, bellow the basic.

Parabéns para as pessoas que trabalham lá . Eles são simpáticas e informam tudo o que você precisa saber. Infelizmente isso é tudo o que há de positivo lá. O som é terrível e é muito difícil de entender o narrador diz já que música é tocada em conjunto com as explicações . Muito pouca informação, abaixo do básico.

Today visited the Planetarium with my family (wife and two children). The attraction is free (10am, 12pm; etc.), but the first recommendation is to arrive two hours in advance for pick up the tickets. Another important information is that access is only for 5 years of age. The Planetarium has been renovated and has an excellent projection of the true heaven of São Paulo, we can not see in its fullness, both in the clouds, as the night light of the city itself.
The visit is worthwhile, the presentation lasts 40 minutes, but the audio is performed only in Portuguese, without translation into Spanish or English.

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

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.
