Considered one of the most technologically advanced planetariums in its field, it is located on Avenida Palenque, in Cancun. Its creation was possible thanks to the financing provided by the Government of Quintana Roo, the National Council of Technology (CONACYT) and the Quintanarroense Council of Science and Technology (COQCYT).
