Went to the park and natural history museum so planned to visit this planetarium too. Unfortunately closed when we went,only a film show on in the evening. Disappointing, thought it was somewhere to visit

It was nice to visit it, there is variety but it is little. It takes half an hour to an hour to visit it. Worth a visit If you are ne-ar Sempione park.

Went for an exhibition on Dante, whom I adore, and it was incredible. If you like planetariums then this place is the place to go. Try to get high up seats or you might get a neck cramp looking, but that's the price you pay for accessible planetariums and star gazing.

If you visit on Tuesday after 1400 the entrance is free. The exhibition is all stuffed animal that are displayed beautiful in there natural settings. It's really nice to see so many different animals up close. Though there is no information on English. Don't expect a long visit, we saw everything after about 1 hour. Though it's a nice experience... More

They have some interesting lectures, but you need to speak/understand Italian. For popular lectures it is better to book in advance.

One of the oldest and largest planetariums of the world, it has fascinated me each time over the past 70 years. I was there with my grandchildren last year and it was even better than ever. To enjoy it fully, learn our beautiful language!

Nice place especially if you're interested in astronomy and there are events like 'Cinedreams' not to miss! After visiting here you can also pass to Natural History Museum which is just next to it and spend a day full of science ☺️

I've been at Planetario U. Hoepli to introduce my young nephew to astronomy. The special occasion was offered by a funny and interesting dramatization offered by some actors and the Planetarium Director during the Xmas period. The venue is dating back the thirties, with the original rotating wooden chairs. Not to be missed even if you're not an astronomy fan!

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
