What People Say

We visited DAG on 2nd Aug 2020 with family and kids. The planetarium show was done about 20 minutes. The telescope observatories was good fun. We watched the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter in all their full glory.
The ticket prices are very reasonable and given the experience, it is worth it. We visited with our parents and kids so 3 generations enjoyed it.

Nazia Javed

Such a great place to visit if you’re so interested in astronomy. Amazing discoveries on what a meteor rock looks like. Very educational. So many things to learn. The giant telescopes were so amazing. Try to be there during one of their events. The experience is unforgettable.
