February 19, 2016 22:45

The starlit sky is getting closer and closer, drawing the audience in. Can one see such a magnificent and captivating large-scale view somewhere without leaving the planet Earth? One of such magic places is the main Planetarium of Russia. This is one of the most popular places in this country. Just imagine: from pre-war 1929 to 1994 the Moscow Planetarium was visited by about 50 million people.

The Planetarium Sky is a huge dome screen. Its size is the largest one in Europe. Visitors can touch real meteorite fragments and even take part in unusual scientific experiments here.

In the Urania Museum both children and adults take enjoyment in looking through an enormous virtual book and rotating the globe. New programs, lectures, and film screenings are regurly held here.

In the Big Observatory visitors can observe planets, stellar systems, nebulas, and star clusters.

The Big Star Hall presents unique new fulldome programs, which can be found only here, in the Moscow Planetarium.

The Earth in Movement unravels the secrets of life existence on the planet. Visitors submerge to the ocean floor and make flights over volcanoes, find themselves in the center of a hurricane and get acquainted with dwellers of the bosom of the sea. The program runs every day, starting at 00:40 pm and 8:10 pm.

The exposition Super Volcanoes tells about the most catastrophic eruptions which had an impact on the entire evolutionary process on the Earth and drastically changed its look. The program is held every day from Sunday to Thursday, starting at 3:30 pm and 7:30 pm.

The rich collection of the museum exhibits has already gained world-wide acclaim and national love. The most popular interactive exhibits should even undergo the so-called "servicing" more often. For example, employees  the robot manipulator under the name Mars Rover quite often repair and every day change flying discs of the popular exhibit Airbag.

Ticket cost to the Big Star Hall, including an excursion in the Urania Museum and the Sky Park makes 550/600 rub.

Open hours:
from 10 am to 9 pm every day except Tuesday
