The Basics

Established in 1984 and renovated in 2006, Medellín Planetarium is a popular, family-friendly attraction that’s easy to access and experience independently. Watch a movie in the 300-seat domed auditorium before wandering through the hands-on exhibits. To save time at the entrance, purchase your ticket online in advance. If you’re pressed for time, simply pass by the planetarium’s spaceship-like exterior—worth a look—during a city tour.
