We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

Staff picked group at plaza and drove us to the planetarium. Don’t expect a typical modern dome like typical venues, this is a rather rustic house. Staff was very kind and careful with explanations of classic constellations. The top part of the visit is getting...More

This is a quaint, family owned planetarium up near SasksayHuaman. They'll pick you up from the plaza right next to the Plaza de Armas, and drop you off at the end of the night. They have a very well produced show, featuring a short lecture...More

This is a family run business. The family is very knowledgeable and has the whole experience set up in a very organized way. After being picked up from the square in town, the van takes you to their home just past Sacsayhuaman. After an astronomy...More

Our astronomer gave an entertaining talk on the stars and sky with in-depth information. We saw a 360 view of the sky in the planetarium then went outside to use binoculars to find our stars.

There is a drive in the van from the city Square up to the planetarium, the show in the building and the sky gazing with their very good telescopes, all total, maybe just short of two hours.
