The area
Address
Neighborhood: Palermo
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.

First off, I am embarrassed by some of the reviews by my fellow U.S. citizens. It is true that the presentation here is only in Spanish. So if you don't speak Spanish, it will be hard to enjoy.

I went into this expecting not to understand. It does not bother me that an establishment in Buenos Aires only presents their information in the native language.

My hope was that the images enough would be enough to engage me. And at times it did, at other times it did not.

This begins with a presentation about constellations from a live person. Following that, it goes into a movie about the history of the universe.

It's about a 45 minute presentation/show but again all in Spanish. It only cost a few dollars in USD so it wasn't cost prohibitive. Literally like $3 for two tickets.

There is nothing else here besides the show. There is not a space museum or anything. Literally a planetarium with a show and nothing else.

This is probably a place to skip if you don't understand Spanish. It's cool looking though so certainly walk by especially if you visit the Japanese Garden as it is only a 5 min walk from there.

A very interesting looking building set in a park. The Planetarium of Galileo Galilei looks like a space ship has landed. We didn't have time to go see a show but worth a visit for the exterior alone

Great place to stop in for a view of the stars. Just make sure you get show times in advance. Tickets are cheap and it’s close to other local attractions.

I’m sure this had potential. It was only 120 pesos to get in, and we were excited to go there, but we had no idea what to do, or where to go when we got inside. We hoped there was a brochure with something in English, but there was NOTHING at all. We couldn’t get into the movie rooms, didn’t know the schedules, and nobody pointed us to anywhere in particular. We were really confused, and finally gave up and walked out. We were very disappointed that there was no way for us to enjoy or understand what they had. It was a big bummer for us 😩. It’s not a good option for English-only speaking visitors.

We read mixed reviews, so we decided to try the planetarium. We have visited many planetariums around the world, as my husband is an astrophysicist and loves teaching our kids about the night sky and beyond.

Unfortunately, we could not enter, as the planetarium only has certain times for entry -- every few hours, so we didn't wait around. Also, everything is in Spanish with no translations, so it would not have worked for us.

Positives: 1. Have usually twice a day planetarium show which concentrates recently on asteroid exploration; 2. Choice of museum versus planetarium show; 3. Reasonably priced for couples and families; 4. Entertaining ducks and other birds outside while you wait in an area overlooking a pretty lake. In Need of Improvement: 1. The museum and planetarium offerings often seem to conflict or overlap, which implies you can't do both the same afternoon; 2. They only gradually bring you from ground floor up to third floor planetarium, which means elderly people or people with very young children have to balance on their stairs for many minutes at a time, not the safest and best thought out modality; 3. No English rendition or listening device for the planetarium, strictly for Spanish speaking individuals.

First, only cash payment!!!
There always is a long waiting line. Bad luck up to 1 hour in the burning sun. You arrive, only 1 out of 3 counters is occupied. But... at the entrence door there are at least 3 employees opening the door. Qualified staff to sit at a counter!! Does it make sence? But you overhere them talk about there backpain, dogs and husbands. Very interesting and after 1 hour waiting enough to put you in a bad mood.
Although the place has gone through a major renovation the actual presentation is not worth the 21th century. On you mobilephone you get the infos in a more spectacular way.
I can not believe that they could not think of another concept to make it more atractive to a younger crowd. And i don`t mean crying babys or 3 to 6 six years old.
A waste of precious time

This is not a tourist attraction for non-Spanish speakers. The planetarium itself is very small, offering little outside of the shows. There is a very small "museum" with maybe 10-12 interesting displays, but that won't take more than 15-20 mins to see. The real attractions here are the shows, which were outstanding- but again, completely in Spanish. So if you don't know any Spanish, you really aren't going to get much out of them (which would be a shame, because the information was fascinating). I was expecting to hear and see the same old information as we'd seen and heard before, but we were pleasantly surprised by the content and just the overall quality of the main show, Cosmic Collisions. Our 5 yr old also greatly enjoyed the pirate show for kids and learning about the different constellations etc. in space. Highly recommend for a rainy afternoon, but make sure you eat before (or plan to east afterward) as there are no concessions. Again, it is a very small space that is really just about enjoying the shows.

In the middle of the gardens of Palermo, this planetary is equal some others in the world. They make good explanations and also have nice shows at night. But the best are the lights, when night come. It turns into the most beautiful building of Palermo, shining like a star.

Set in the middle of a public park and designed as the planet Saturn it is a beautiful structure. Recently renovated. See the new LED lights at night.
