Here you can simulate the universe. With a very nice set of projectors, they simulate all the events in the sky, and the positions of the stars and planets all over the year and where they are in the sky. Very nice!

I love this kind of places and was really excited to have an opportunity to visit it, Well, it wasn’t the complete disappointment, but it could be far, far better; it is short, outdated and not very attractive presentation.

We only went to the planetario as queues for the monastery were too long. It was OK but nothing special. The session took one hour but I'm sure it could have been done in half the time. Not impressed that it was all in Portuguese...More

The experience is very simple and short, if you can get the discount of 2.50€ you can manage to be satisfied :P otherwise I don't suggest it. You can use your time in Lisbon in a better way. There is the English version on the...More

Having persuaded my family how great it would be to go to a planetarium.. I couldn't have been more disappointed. Extremely amateurish and boring; so bad in fact it was pretty funny and we all had a good laugh so the trip wasn't totally wasted...More

What a big disappointment... I used to love this place as a child, but now it just feels like a cheap projection system... :/ Noisy speakers and bad projection totally ruins the experience. Will not return unless they update the all system.

Nice interactive movie for children explaining the very basics of astronomy with a basic children story . Nice option for a rainy day with kids.

You'll see many delicate and elaborate pieces of arts from Europe, Anatolia, Persia, and China: carpets, vases, portraits, furnitures, jewelery, and so on. The ticket is 6 € for adults (it must be 2,5 € for students). It's worth to see. It's in a kind...More
