Because I know many people enjoy this (including myself), I want to say that in Lille you can find a Planetarium, even a really nice one. It is located inside 'Le Forum des Sciences', a tribute to science all across the world. The entry fares for the Planetarium are 5 euros the full price and 3.5 euros with reduction. It is opened from Tuesday to Friday from 10 AM to 5:30 PM and on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 2:30 PM to 6:30 PM. The best way to get there is to take the metro, direction 4 Cantos and to get off to station Villeneuve d'Ascq Hôtel de Ville. From there there is only a little walk until arrival.

Address:
1B, Chaussée de l'Hôtel de Ville, 59650 Villeneuve-d'Ascq, France
