When we were at the science museum in Warsaw last week we also went and did the planetarium which is attached to the museum. Since my husband’s foot is still quite sore from when he broke it 8 weeks ago, walking activities are not high on our sightseeing list. So, movie watching is high on our sightseeing list. We had yet to go to the planetarium so last Friday the planetarium was a perfect fit.
You can enter here either through the science museum if you bought passes to get into the science museum or you can walk around to the back side next to the river to enter through the planetarium’s main entrance.
Welcome to the Warsaw planetarium!
Oh if this time machine really worked.
Don’t speak Polish no worries, as everything is in both Polish and English.
While you are waiting for your movie to start, you can learn more about the plants on this interactive display.
Then as you learn about that planet right next to it is this ball. On it they show what the planet looks like. Unfortunately, it was to bright out for us to really see the video on the ball.
Where is “Pluto”? I still have a hard time thinking it is just a star now.
Everyone waiting patiently for them to open the doors to go into the theater. They show a new movie every hour just about. You buy the tickets for each individual movie. We went to 2 movies that day.
Well it looks like a this is going to a full house.
Girls having fun with their 3-D glasses.
This is what an empty planetarium looks like.
If you want English translation make sure you pick up your headsets at the front desk at the main entrance. There is no cost for them, you just need to leave them an ID.
This the preview of the 2-D movie that we saw first. To tell you how much fun this one was…I fell asleep during it. The hardest part was that for this movie the English taped version was like 3 or 4 sentences and the guy who was walking around talking about what we were seeing in Polish did like 20+ sentences, so I know we missed a lot.
The preview of the 3-D movie that we saw. One word describes this movie…AWESOME!! I could easily see this one over and over. Even the Mars movie they should be for this one was really good. Now the English translation for both of the 3-D movies was great. The Mars version we missed somethings but images more than made up for it and the movie is an actually movie both in Polish and English so nothing was missed during this one. The narrator was a lady in the movie and her voice was stunning!
We had an hour in between our movies which was perfect for a lunch break. We ate at the cafe they had there. It is a bit more expensive compared to other places but the convenience is well worth it. If you have never tried the famous Polish, French bread pizza…zapiekanka you need too! I love them and and they are available everywhere and cheap.
We had great time here! This will be on our bucket list to visit again the next time we are in Warsaw as there are several other movies to see.
How did you learn to memorize the order of the planets? My 7th grade teacher did it this sentence for us…my Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizza pies. Now I am going to have think of a new sentence.
