On the second floor, visitors can learn more about celestial spheres and constellations and the solar system. And telescopes, observatories the exhibits on the stars, the Milky Way and galaxies are located on the third floor. PDA guide services are also available.

    Renovations at the moment


    We came without realizing most exhibits are currently under renovation. The cosmic ride on the 4th floor was still available. It was ok but overall feeling was one of entertainment vs education. There are some video game style things to do after the ride. We did not watch the videos

    Great place to adorns a rainy day


    Lots of fun and very cheap for the quality. A great place to spend time with your family of you have an afternoon that your want to spend inside. Highly recommend the "ride" on the 4th floor and the VR games.

    Ancient Astronomy


    Let’s face it, visiting a relatively old astronomy museum isn’t what we want even though ancient astronomy can date back in light years. Just wish that it is more modern than what we would have expected. The locker, for instance, is so old that I can’t open it after storing my backpack there.

    Very nice!


    Was really an interesting museum. You can even look through the big telescope in the observatory.... very cool! I became a 50 year old kid again doing that (new experience for me) My 8 year old son had a ball. Highly recommend for a couple of hours, especially with kids.

    A must see for science enthusiasts


    The permanent exhibits and interactive areas are very well made, and they have very understandable explanations for people of all ages. Every child and adult should be able to find out more about the universe that we live in to appreciate the magnificence of nature, and the scope of what humans have been able to discover so far. Very recommendable.
