Through performances and interactive games, children (and adults) feel closer to the world of science – which many see as distant and unknown – and develop a greater comprehension of it.

There are digital shows for young children such as The Little Prince, and also for teenagers and adults such as Space Travel.

For the older children there is an Interactive Science and Technology Exhibition which aims to introduce them to new concepts (materials, audio and video communication, principles of biotechnology). Children are also given the chance to observe the applications of science and technology in everyday life, such as  how animated movies are produced.

Other parents say...

  • With shows like “The Life of Mr DENTROULI” the kids are being introduced to the world of trees and learn about their importance. Kids love it so much that at the end they all stand up in an effort to catch the flowers.

  • Perhaps the most beautiful element of the Planetarium is its broad appeal to all members of the family; from the youngest to the oldest.

  • The staff in the cafe had enough patience to accommodate the needs of my five-member family!

  • Despite the fact that I visited the Planetarium during a very busy day, I felt there was peace and harmony throughout the Planetarium.

  • The staff at the ticketing desk were very effective. No idea how such a huge queue of fans found their way in time before the performance in the amphitheatre started!
