London Planetarium Reviews
Newest Review: ... fun but perhaps just two hours, maybe. The entrance lobby had a few interesting gadgets and interactive displays, but I remember thinking it wasn't anything special. For this reason, I was keen to move on into the main section. Through to the next part, there were a couple of posters and a poor attempt at some interactive displays. A queue indicated that this was the waiting area for a show. We sat tight waiting for the doors to open to the auditorium. We sat in total for about 45 minutes. The children were bored to tears and so were we! At last we were led into the show. The seats were in a semi-circle and the film was shown pro... more

If you're looking at the reviews of the Planetarium, watch out! The London Planetarium was moved from Madame Tussauds to the Royal Greenwich Observatory in 2007, so all pre-2007 reviews are totally irrelevant now. I have yet to go so this is not strictly a review. However, from looking at the website and the 2010 review below, I am looking forward to taking my almost-4 year old son there next week. Although the shows are recommended for age 5 and over, under 5s will be admitted. I have given it 4 stars in anticipation...

A couple of months ago I went to the London Planetarium as part of a 'two for one' Time Out splurge around London. You can buy tickets for the Planetarium for around £7.00 or so or buy them as a joint ticket with the Madame Toussards Exhibition next door. This works out a bit cheaper but you still need to remember to remortgage your house before setting out. At half price, the family ticket for both was still around £30 - if you see what I mean. Anyway, I digress. Having cost around a third of the joint ticket price, I was not expecting hours of fun but perhaps just two hours, maybe. The entrance lobby had a few interesting ...

If you've read my opinion on Madame Tussauds, then you will know that I visited the Planetarium in part to avoid the long queue to get into Madame Tussauds. The Planetarium is part of the Tussauds group, and located next door to Madame T's, with a connecting door between the two - thus once you're inside the Planetarium you bypass the queue to get into Madame T's – nice one! Unfortunately however there is a downside - it is a little pricey to say the least. A single ticket to the Planetarium is £6.50, and a combined ticket to both Madame T's and the Planetarium is £13.95. I think the combined ticket is definitely the best option, as ...

My boyfriend and I visited the planetarium as part of a joint ticket with Madame Tussauds included. It is easy to get to right beside the Baker St tube station. I must say while there were some redeeming features I was not overly impressed by it, and it is just as well it is on the other side of Madame Tussauds because it really does not stand out as a major attraction all by itself. This is because firstly the main show is far too short, and secondly there is not a sufficient variety of “displays” you look at before you enter the main arena. Displays included weight machines that gave peoples weight on Venus, Mars and simultaneously on earth, ... Read the complete review

~ ~ Ever since I was a teenager in the 1960’s, I have had a fascination with space and the planets. This was the golden age of space travel, with the Americans and Russians competing against each other in their bid to be the first to send a man to the Moon. The Americans were to win this race when Neil Armstrong uttered those immortal words, “One small step for Man, one giant leap for Mankind” when he became the first human to set foot on the lunar surface in July of 1969. Many have travelled there since, but as a young man of eighteen, sitting watching this moment of history being enacted on an old 20-inch black and white TV, it was like the ...
