Do remember to ask for headphones if you need to hear the show in English otherwise a pointless visit. We enjoyed the show we saw which we noted was mostly US produced. Shame as would have wanted to experience a Russian production of which I'm sure there were some. Lot's of exhibits to look at prior to entering the planetarium... More

We booked tickets at a show about Universe translated in English, a 3D amazing projection. The exhibition is interesting too.

The Planetarium has a lot to offer. We came for "The Dark Side of the Moon" laser show, but we had enough time and went to "uranium", where you can see and conduct different experiments from physics and astronomy. Exciting! :)) I mean it! It's good for both children and adults, don't miss it :)

Mostly Russian language but managed to get a English speaking guide for Mars Project. It was great and a different experience compared to elsewhere. Students will appreciate a lot.

The facility is new and impressive at first glance. We went hoping to see a show in the main dome and some exhibits so we asked about their schedule and whether anything was in English. We were told at the English speaking ticket window that all shows were in English, great!, so we bought tickets (600ru each) for the next... More

Place seems to be full of entertainment but each one has to be paid separately, which makes the experience quiet limited. We have visited "Trip to the Red Planet" entertainment and would say it's only suitable for under 10's, as it too fake for the older one's. We have chosen to visit interactive science exhibits (just a pick, as we... More

Took our kids there while visiting Moscow. Were unable to buy tickets online using the Canadian-issued cards, had to ask a third party to use his Russian card, and it worked OK. We watched a show in the Great Star Hall, and the experience is unforgettable - the music, the animation, and the information - everything was impeccable. Highly recommended.

We checked out the Lunarium halls with our kids and loved it. Every exhibit is interactive so your kids will have the opportunity to learn about science in a very enjoyable way. The exhibits cover robotics, gravity, leverage etc. Instructions / explanations are in Russian, German, English and Chinese.

Neighbourhood Profile
The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers along with the White House - where the Russian government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo, National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary is usually packed with the events such as organ music concerts.
