Did you know that there is a planetarium in Malargüe?

For more than 10 years, the planetarium has been offering different tourism. Learning science in a fun way is the challenge for visitors.

Planetario de Malargüe

The  Malargüe Planetarium   has been contributing to scientific dissemination for more than 10 years . Tourists, locals and school groups attend daily to learn about and learn about the Universe, planets and  science .


Under the imposing pharaonic pyramid that distinguishes the  planetarium ,  a ten-meter-diameter dome was mounted, a 4k digital projection system, LED lighting and 5.1 surround sound , all manufactured by a prominent American company. In the beginning,  the most outstanding productions on the market were exhibited and were complemented by interactive  tours  of the  universe .  This gave it a plus as the visitor could acquire tailor-made knowledge and entertainment of a great visual impact.

While the dome and projection are the vedettes of this outreach center,  there are other activities that make the stay on the planetarium richer, such as guided tours through three clocks  solar,  school work, a digital magazine and a science museum.  This space is being transformed thanks to the fact that it managed to win a national call and access to State funding.

The planetarium is a tourist attraction of the City of  Malargüe  all year round, for the whole family. It offers a possibility of interaction with the tourist through  8 different functions.  Among them: infinite space, being an  astronaut , knowing how galaxies form.

 There is also a circuit guided by 3 solar watches on the premises  and, also, a museum where science becomes entertainment and tourists can play. The mirror box, plasma, mirage are some of the attractions.
