Moscow planetarium


The renovated Moscow Planetarium is not just an astronomy museum where you can go to gaze at the starry sky. Fall into a black hole, tame lightning inside a plasma ball, make an artificial cloud, swing Foucault’s pendulum and get a look inside a Wilson chamber.

The renovated Moscow Planetarium is not just an astronomy museum where you can go to gaze at the starry sky. Fall into a black hole, tame lightning inside a plasma ball, make an artificial cloud, swing Foucault’s pendulum and get a look inside a Wilson chamber. All of these physical phenomena that seemed so incomprehensible at school promise to become exciting, interesting and fun with the help of the planetarium’s interactive exhibits. The most important thing at the planetarium however, is still a chance to see the stars. Thanks to the artificial lighting, even those who live in the big city will have the opportunity to gaze at the starry skies that Copernicus and Galileo did. Visiting the Moscow Planetarium, guests are given the chance not only to travel through space, but also through time, witnessing the astronomical phenomena that took place during several millennia.
