If you ask me why I chose Noesis to be included in my favorite spots, the reason is twofold! At first because the complex includes the planetarium, one of Thessaloniki’s landmarks and secondly because the whole concept of Noesis is extremely interesting and unique!
Noesis is located in Thermi, in the east side of Thessaloniki and it’s not possible to miss it as you will notice the impressive planetarium from far away!
Now let me describe what you can do in this amazing complex of science and technology! The highlight of course is the Planetarium where you can watch movies such as ‘Christmas Star’, ‘From the Earth to the Universe’, ‘Astronomyths’ and ‘The Zula Patrol 2’. Also try a movie in the Cosmotheater! The choices for this period include ‘Dragons 3D’ and ‘Dinosaurs 3D’. The Simulator is another great feature of Noesis but I have to warn you that if you suffer from nausea you must avoid that experience! Anyway if that is not an issue, you can experience the realistic AirFighter and exploration of the Great Wall of China!
Moreover, you can visit the incredible Technology Museum!
Although Noesis is open from Tuesday to Sunday it’s highly advisable to visit it during the weekend as the other days are mainly scheduled for schools or groups.
