A planetarium show

A trip to our free planetariumis 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'.
