Omniversum An all-round amazing experience Omniversum - the movie theatre where you are part of the action. It has a screen 4500 times larger than an ordinary TV, pumps out 15,000 watts of sound from 36 speakers and immerses your senses in the most amazing film experience ever. This unique movie theatre is designed to transport you to another world. The big-screen films take you to space, where you can meet the astronauts of the International Space Station, and bring you face-to-face with the most fascinating scenery and creatures on Earth. And all without having to leave your seat. You don't just watch a film here, you become part of it! Omniversum, an attraction in The Hague for over 33 years, is a unique movie theatre, the only one of its kind in the Benelux. The films are suitable for all ages, unless specified otherwise. The films are in Dutch but a special app lets you follow the original English-language version using your own mobile phone and headset. Earphones can also be obtained from the Omniversum front desk. A new film starts every hour on the hour. If you want to watch a second film on the same day, you only pay EUR 5.50. Omniversum is suitable for children from the age of four, but some young children may find the large screen and sound system rather overwhelming.

Supposedly the biggest screen in the Netherlands, this IMAX shows new movies every hour covering sea life, space and the animal kingdom. Note though that all films are in Dutch language, and while translation via Mobile or Seat Plug is provided, this is far from...More

We visited the Omniversum with our son to watch a movie regarding the rain forest. It was like we were sitting in the middle of it. Really nice thing to do on a rainy Sunday.

Had free tickets, which made it worth going. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful to see a nice nature film on a screen like that, but it's quite expensive and lasts only around 45 minutes. The under water life movie we saw was terribly boring....More

Omniversum was unique place at the time it was opened and it still has something of its glory, but surely it could be renovated. The movie about earth from space was interesting, but we expected more.

Dear Observer76, Thank you for your visit to Omniversum and your review. I am sorry to hear that you expected more of the film A Beautiful Planet. The audience seems to really like it, they rated the film with an 8,2. Best regards, Alexandra Omniversum
