You can tell the family is very passionate about the planetarium and the knowledge they share with you. For a family run planetarium it is quite impressive. Definitely recommend

Even though the sky was overcast during the activity, it is worth the detour. It is a local project built by enthusiasts of astronomy. The projection of the sky with the explanations given is fascinating and instructive. There is even a short time on the Northern Hemisphere.
