Completely renovated, the Planetarium is one of the must-see attractions of the city.
The Planetarium is the main astronomy dissemination center in the city. It has a hemispherical projection room with three hundred and sixty reclining seats and a dome twenty meters in diameter where nearly 8,900 stars, planets and satellites of the universe are reproduced, thanks to an impressive equipment (unique in Latin America) that contains six Sky-light projectors. Skan with 8K resolution, indicating that the dome contains 38 million pixels.
Its five-story building also has a museum and a small secondary projection room, in addition to housing a collection of meteorites from northern Argentina. In the adjacent lake there is the Surprised sculpture, by the Italian Nicolás A. Ferrari and, a few meters away, an evocative monolith of the Polish sage Nicolás Copernicus.
During 2017, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, its building -declared Historical and Cultural Heritage of the City-, was restored and enhanced, respecting its original physiognomy and aesthetics. From the park it is possible to enjoy 50 meters of translucent LED screens and a remote management system so that the Planetarium lights up in coordination with six other key points in Buenos Aires: the Obelisk, the Monument of the Spanish, the Pyramid of May , the Women's Bridge, the Floralis Generica and the Monumental Tower.
In the museum on the first floor, a complete technological revolution was carried out that includes a robot that interacts with visitors, touch screens with astronomical information, virtual reality, 4D simulators and augmented reality games.
In the ring on the second floor there is an astro-gallery with photographic exhibitions on large screens and in the Astronomical Plaza a "selfie point" was installed to take photos, play with astro filters and achieve images that will be projected on the screens of the ring.
