October 5, 2011 11:52

The Sky Park, Moscow Planetarium

Once you enter Moscow Planetarium, you see that everything has completely changed. It is no longer a boring Soviet building, but a modern and beautiful place with a range of interactive attractions. Today it has two observatories, exhibition areas (the “Lunarium” and “Uranium” museums), a 4D cinema, a Sky Park, Big and Small Star Halls. 
The renovated Planetarium has become one of the main popular venues in the city.
The Big Star Hall is really worth a visit. Here you can examine stars and planets, travel through black holes, learn about the Bing Bang theory and see the sun at arm's length.
Two interactive museums capture the visitor's attention by presenting intriguing exhibitions. The special feature is that you can touch objects and see various physical phenomena in real time. The authors wanted to show that science can be enterntaining and people can enjoy learning physics and history of space exploration.
4D cinema is a reason for delight among children. Stereoscopic system, dynamic seats and special effects give the feeling of flight and fall during watching an astronomy movie.
If the weather is good you can visit a Sky Park located on the roof. There is a collection of astronomical devices made for research the Universe. It includes giant globes, sundials and other unusual instruments.
One of the advantages of the renovated planetarium is a unique projector – Universarium M9, showing about 9000 twinkling stars and giving the most detailed picture of the sky.
The reconstruction of planetarium has resulted in the appearance of technically advanced building with a new main hall, cafe “Telescope”, a souvenir shop and a car park. Today it looks no worse, than any modern western museum.
It can be said that today's Moscow Planetarium is a must-see tourist destination. Every should visit it, because this is the place that can take your breath away.
