If you have been to any nice planetariums in the states I would definitely skip this one. It could be nice for kids, but for adults it's pretty much just watching a short youtube documentary in a nice dome. Nothing special in terms of interaction...More

The screening dome is stunning, takes you to another place, great to learn, precise, brief, and clear enough to help you not forget the experience, makes us desire to go every time any different event take place. People who study spanish in medellin can easily...More

We popped in while we were in the area. It's a sweet (small) museum but absolutely everything is in Spanish. As the admission isn't the cheapest we expected to see some English floating around. They take student discounts if you have a card.

I didn't actually go into the Planetario, but I explored the neighbourhood it stands in as it contains a lot of very modern and interesting buildings. The science/exploratorium park is across the street and both are worth checking out for views of modern Medellin. The...More

When you arrived, you can see as others places. Be sure to have a very good guide for explanations. Have much more you are expecting for a park in the Citi.

The dome has a movie projected onto it. It is boring and lacks the magic of the old-school light shows. While waiting there are some fun interactive things to do. At 7:00pm on weekends they project a Disney movie onto the outside wall of the...More
