Please note: The planetarium will be closed from Wednesday 22 May to Saturday 25 May 2013 for essential maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience.
A trip to our free planetarium is a must for all visitors to the museum! You can blast off on a spectacular journey through space and time, learning about the Universe on your way.
The planetarium had a major re-vamp in 2012 to include a new digital projection system, which has transformed the planetarium's shows. You can see photos of the refurbishment on Flickr.
This new technology creates mind-blowing shows where you will be able to get up-close to the moon or the volcanoes of Mars from the comfort of your seat. Our new digital show is called 'Chronicle of a Journey to Earth'.
Entrance to the planetarium is free.
Tickets are available on the day of the show from 10am until 5 minutes before the show starts (or until they are all gone, whichever is sooner).
Tickets are only available from the information desk on the ground floor and are on a first come first served basis.
Tickets cannot be pre-booked in advance.
