We enjoyed our visit at the Planetarium, during the summer there is only documentaries to watch that are in Greek. Also the shop has excellent educational toys that are exclusively sold there.

The only activity they are now proposing is the movie "Flying to the Moon". I think the movie fits children 7-. Any way my kids of 14YO and 10YO were not impressed. The cosmos' exhibition is closed...

The museum has an Interactive science and technology exhibition, a planitarium with science educational movies for kids and a interesting library. It also has an excellent technology Lab but the admission to the science group needs to be confirmed in advance.

Well lit in the night and a must for selfie. It became a good landmark on the evening walk on the beach front.

Came recommended by a friend to show my 13 years old son his first planetarium. He loved it and was very disappointed when the 30 minutes show ended.

The planetarium offers great programs for children and adults, holds thematic exhibitions on science photography etc and has an excellent library. Add to that the great coffee and science shop and you have an enjoyable experience.

We went on New Year's Eve and had the whole place almost all to ourselves. There are two parts to this facility: the Planetarium and the Science Museum. The planetarium show (really, a film), entitled "Strange Worlds in the Solar System" was visually spectacular and amazingly up-to-date. It included NASA data from two months previous, and was scientifically awe-inspiring. The... More

A bit difficult to get information on as the website is not accurate, but it is on the main street. It is HUGE and modern. a good way to relax for an hour (12 euro) in a day of sites. On the way to Piraus.

It takes to much to reach Planetarium with public transportation, during summer from 20th July until 10th of August it is closed, videos only after 17.30 and not all the weekdays. For family with children it is a waste of time. We reached it around noon and it was closed for public...only the shop was opened. If you really want... More
