Planetarium and Observatory in TIM (Jakarta)

By Jakarta100bars
The Planetarium and Observatory of Jakarta is a little-known attraction which is well-worth visiting, particularly if you have kids. The videos projected are only in Indonesian but it is still a fun thing to do, even if you don't understand everything.

Part of the TIM (Taman Ismail Marzuki) in Menteng, it was built in 1968 and renovated in 1996. The entrance is Rp7,000  for adults and Rp3,500 for children.

Timetable for the planetarium video projections:

During weekdays, open to individuals only for 1 session (1 hour) at 4.30pm. If you are a group, you have sessions at 9.30am, 11am and 1.30pm (100 persons minimum).

During the weekend, all sessions are open to individuals: 10am, 11.30am, 1pm and 2.30pm (1 hour)

I didn't visit the observatory and I'm not sure it is still available to the public. With the light pollution in Jakarta, I cannot imagine that you can see many stars anyway.
