Galileo Galilei Planetarium: the head in the stars


Explore the southern nebulas in this unique space whose reputation extends far beyond the South American continent.

In Park Palermo, the Galileo Galilei Planetarium, inaugurated in 1966, is a unique modernist building consisting of a sphere supported by three arches, which seem to come out nowhere. The building has a circular room 20 metres in diametre and a hemispherical dome in which a sky and its 8,900 stars, constellations and nebulas are projected. The visitor also has the opportunity to view a large number of educational films on the creation of the universe.

The Buenos Aires Planetarium is undoubtedly one of the best in the world. With new LED lamp technology, you will witness amazing performances and the Milky Way will be revealed to you in new ways. From a moon rock collected by Apollo XI (gift from US President Richard Nixon) to a meteorite over 4,000 years old found in northern Argentina in the Chaco province, you will find a plethora of unusual objects that deserve a visit.
