    Home of the only IMAX theater and the biggest planetarium in Sweden. This is the place to go for those space lovers and amateur astronomers.

    Before the movie starts, they play a little movie about the star show of the month (månadens natthimmel) and this part is in Swedish only. The movies are played in Swedish but there's headphones on sale for those who want to listen to the movies with English audio. Wednesdays at 18h00 they show their produced-by-us planetarium movie.

    To get in to Cosmonova you must pay the entrance to the Museum of Natural History. Discount with the Stockholm Card.

    If you have some time, you really should visit Cosmonova, which is located in the Swedish Museum of Natural History. Cosmonova is the largest planetarium in Sweden, and one of the most modern in the world. But it is not only a planetarium; it is also Sweden's only Imax Theatre. And a fantastic theatre that is! The screen is enormous and dome-shaped; 760 square meters in area, 11 meters high, and 23 meters in diameter.

    There are always a couple of films showing at the same time, so you can choose what you would like to see. The films are in Swedish but I got a headset so I could hear the movie translated in English. Don't forget to ask for it though when you go here.

    I don't have any photos of the Cosmonova, so I posted one of my own 'bug' photos. Hahaha, think of seeing all kinds of bugs in huge size getting close to you... arghhh.... hahaha, I think I will choose another movie instead ;-)
    As the films are constantly changing, you best take a look at their website to see the current films
