Moscow Planetarium, closed 17 years ago for repairs, will be reopened for public mid-June 2011. After the reconstruction, the museum area has increased six times and it can accommodate about one thousand visitors.
The renovated planetarium will focus on interactivity – experience the effect of weightlessness, observe tornadoes and Moon craters creation, etc. There is a “Universarium M9” device installed in the Moscow Planetarium, which is one of the most advanced projectors capable of displaying the starry skies above different cities around the world.
In addition, there will be a 4D-cinema with themed programmes.
Tickets cost will be known in April 2011.
