Located near the IMAX, the Planetario de Madrid is a good place to see temporary exhibitions on the Solar System and learn more about the Cosmos with its 50 special effects projectors that simulate the Solar System, stellar explosions, pulsars, black holes and galaxies. One of the highlights is the optical planetarium, which projects a realistic image of the night sky and the movement of the planets. Or, if you prefer, you can watch 40-minute films on the same subject. There are also kids' workshops, courses, gatherings and more.
