The building sits amidst wide-open parks in the green Palermo area of Argentina’s bustling capital. The park also features an artificial lake populated with ducks and reeds that was renovated for the opening of the Planetario. The Planetario renovation will also restore the outside solar clock, install facilities for the disabled, and fix the central circular elevator, which has been out of service for 20 years.

If you are planning to visit Buenos Aires, don’t miss out on the Planetario Galileo Galillei and its new eco-friendly LED lights.

In addition to spectacular planetarium shows, the building showcases a piece of the Moon (gift by the Apollo XI’s mission), and the entrance features marine fossils dating back more than 100 million years and a grey metallic meteorite that fell from the sky back in 1965.
