The dome of the Moscow Planetarium with a diameter of 25 metres is one of the largest in Europe. The Planetarium ranks among the 10 most visited science education and museum complexes in Moscow and has been repeatedly called the best sightseeing venue in the capital. Three thousand people come here daily to see the stars, and this figure reaches one million per year.
This is the only science education complex on the planet, which has a classic and an interactive museum, two observatories, an open astronomical platform, a 4D cinema and two star rooms.

The first level of the museum is dedicated to the history of the Planetarium, as well as the history of the development of tools and methods of cognition of the Universe. Here you can see the mock-ups of old instruments: the Galilean telescope, the Newtonian telescope,and the celestial globe of Johannes Hevelius. At the second level, the audience will be introduced to the world of heavenly bodies. The online tour is hosted by the senior methodologist of the Moscow Planetarium Elena Ilushchenko.
