“Dissapointed”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Hi found this interesting, but I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have more information, it took me 10 minutes to read everything they had, and it was a bit expensive.

“Learn billion years of history in less than an hour!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

If you are interessted in astronomy, you will love the meteorite museum. It has the most complete collection of meteorites, that is available for display for the public, including one of the rarest meteorites known.

We also did star gazing trough the meteorite museum with Steve. Steve is a Belgium physisist, and he is really really passionate about stargazing. His english is perfect, and his approach to the Stargazing is really unformal, contrary to other observatories we visited. As a resultat, the contact with the audience is much better. Other observatories have a bigger telescopes, but they are not trained physisists, and their english is so-so. And the extra diameter doesn`t give you that much more imho.

If you'll do one stargazing in SPA, pay a little extra and book at the meteorite museum.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

If you like a bit of astronomy you are going to like this place for sure.

Rodrigo "the meteorite hunter" will explain every thing that you need to know about them.

Must visit!
