Afternoon in the planetarium

They do a show which is quite good, but the place needs to be a bit more clean. Other than that I thought it was very informative and special.

Went there a couple of days ago and the video just wasn't worth it. The documentary starting with space ended up displaying a pacemaker. Not really what you expected, and not really what we wanted to see

We just took pictures outside by the lake with jets and ducks and geese. Plus an oversized giant bench which was fun for pictures!

Decided to visit the local planetarium very spontaneously, and simply because I wanted to be an astronaut when I was 10 - 12. I remember really loving the London planetarium, and that's actually why I am giving this place a 4 instead of a 5. It's really educational, and well done, with different shows for different audiences. However, the London... More

We wanted to go on a rainy day. The building outside is great but inside its nothing special. There was several hours to the next show, and we had a little girl who needed to go to the bathroom, which wasn't possible. When you're in the museum business, you just lent you're bathrooms out, if you want a happy audience.

When you arrive at the building you have contact with real metheorites! You may touch them! As you enter the building, some Phisics experiences and information about our world makes you to wonder. Then you enter the great dome and the sunset, stars, planets, moon, stars, galaxies, all go before your eyes! When it is over, you certainly will say... More

It was a pity that on January 1 it was closed, we did took many pictures around it though, the gardens are beautiful and there are some duck swimming in the lake which are interesting to observe!

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
