The Ever-Changing Sky 3D

*Please note due to a fire on our roof on 9 April, we're closed for a few weeks, including the whole of the Easter holidays. We'll be back very soon*


The night sky is something we often think of as eternal and unchanging, when actually it's in a constant state of flux.

Step into the giant silver ball to discover how constellations move over time, investigate the planet Venus, and take a look at the movement of stars over astronomical timescales. You'll even get a glimpse of the sky above Bristol one million years in the future!

The combination of our incredible 3D Planetarium with our lively and knowledgeable presenters, makes for a remarkable show and a truly jaw-dropping experience.

Whether you are an amateur astronomer or completely new to stargazing, you'll be able to escape the everyday and leave inspired to discover the night sky for yourself.

Shows last 30 minutes.
