Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The museum is closed due to restoration works. The Planetarium is an amazing “space and time machine”: thanks to digital projectors, it is possible to embark on three-dimensional virtual journeys through outer space. The concept behind the Museum is that of a real Astronomical Theatre, full of images, models, and reconstructions of the different planets.

Honestly, if you don't speak Italian or have attended any primary school lesson regarding star constellations, you won't learn anything new here. Additionally, the Planetarium is straight from the 1970s and is even narrated in a tacky, cheap fashion. The location (in Rome's EUR district) is also extremely awkward to locate. Rather than being a cutting-edge, modern presentation, the actual star presentation looked to me like a science fair for children. The actual museum, which used ancient computer monitors to offer an "interactive" spacey perspective, were truly depressing. I wouldn't recommend that anyone over the age of 10 waste 7,50 euro for a ticket! On a positive note, there was a public toilet that I needed to use! Thanks for that!
