The Calouste Gulbenkian Planetarium / Live Science Centre is located in one of the most touristic
and beautiful quarter in Lisboa: Belém, integrated in the architectonic set of the Jerónimos Monastery.
The building was built in 1965 under the project of the architect Frederico George, integrating the Marine Museum, dedicated to Astronomy and all its sciences.
Following the new technologies, the Planetarium exhibits daily commented projections about the Cosmos and the role and evolution that Men has in it. It is possible to observe a projected sky with about 9.000 stars and the Milky Way.
The Planetarium also promotes thematic and promotional sessions as well as other pedagogic activities.
