We went to the planet show this weekend. The content, from the point of view of an educator, is fair. Yes, it is visual. But it did not hold our attention (neither my wife, myslf, or my toddler) for more than ten minutes. That said, the outside rocket demonstration was spectacular and motivated us to want to build a DIY... More

This is one of if not the largest planetarium in Latin America. It is well done, there is a nice museum with interactive displays that I found interesting, and the actual show in the planetarium really helped me better understand there some of the constellations are. Well worth the time to visit...

If you find yourself in a rainy Bogota day, check out the planetarium. Great for families. All the museum text is in Spanish as well as English. You'll find what you would expect in this type of museum, plus some gems like a video of how indigenous Colombian communities relate to the stars.

I enjoyed the show at this planetarium. There were very good places where one could take pictures. I especially liked taking the picture in the astronaut's empty head. It is truly a nice experience.

Nice modern attraction. Even though small and relatively limited for most travelers,it offers something for every age group. It's also used as a center of education for students of elementary and high schools. If you don't speak spanish you'll be lost in the auditorium, as all narration and explanations will be in spanish. The rest of the planetarium has text... More

Is a great place for children. Be aware that the laser show is in Spanish. Is a bit overwhelming going in because there are different options and sometimes you don't have all the information. There are a lot of volunteers willing to help you but might be too much if you are in a hurry. The museum part is nice... More

I read most of the reviews and thought lets take my family to this place. We went and were very disappointed. Staff asked abrupt questions and were in a tone of "why are you here?" We thought that was odd. The place was disorganized and nothing was available for our two children. We ended up leaving as it was a... More

Planetarium laser show was really good. Expected more of a guided tour in the main museum part. Some very cool interactive displays, but overall more suitable for kids over 4 years. Nice restaurant
