The Planetarium was built at the initiative of Mayor Virgilio Barco Vargas in 1967, and officially opened on December 22, 1969. This was the first of a set of nine museums, which operate today as a cultural center in the city. The Planetarium also contains a Space Museum, a Public Library and a Conference Auditorium. The building also housed in the beginning, the Natural Science Museum, the Film District and the Museum of Modern Art.
In 2008, when the city turned 470 years old, the Planetarium bought a new projector. In order to provide better service to visitors, a public souvenir shop and a modern café were created.
In 2011 began the final stage of planetary remodeling which reinforced the structure, improved signage, renewed dome projection screen, expanded capacity and built the Space Museum, which consists of five interactive rooms.
