Planetarium Nights (16+)

Every Thursday night, wander into the giant silver ball for your very own evening tour of the known universe. Our team of inspiring presenters will deliver a different show every time you visit. They'll tell different stories of ancient stargazers, fly you to far away galaxies and show you views from distant and newly discovered planets. 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. You can grab yourself a drink from our bar for added motion sensations and enjoy the exhibits in our space gallery beforehand.
