Planetarium of Milan

The Civic Planetarium “Ulrico Hoepli” of Milan is an institute for communication and education in astronomy and related sciences like physics and astronautics.

The Planetarium is the largest in Italy and is named after the “planetarium” instrument which it has installed. A planetarium is a projection system that realistically reproduces the starry night sky as well as astronomical phenomena as observed from any place on earth at any time in the past, the present and the future. Guided projections generally take place every Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

The building is located on the edge of the Giardini Publici, and is a stone’s throw away from the Natural History Museum. It was originally built for the Italian publisher Ulrico Hoepli, who donated it to the city of Milan after its inauguration in 1930.
