Medellín Planetarium (Planetario de Medellín)
Families won’t want to miss the Medellín Planetarium, where science and space come to life through immersive film screenings and interactive exhibits. Explore the scale of the solar system, learn about the Mayas, and much more.
 
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.

When to Get There
Medellín Planetarium is open every day except Monday, and hours vary—see the website. To beat the crowds, avoid school holidays, and go midweek, right after opening.
