Our Night Sky Planetarium Show

In this live 360-degree experience, your planetarium presenter will take you on an extraordinary tour of the stars, planets and constellations visible on the night of your visit from our little corner of the globe, Auckland.

Be curious, ask questions, look up, and be amazed as you experience the Auckland night sky in ways you’ve never seen before. As Earth moves through the seasons, the view above us is ever-changing so you’ll get a new perspective on the celestial sights every time you return.

If the weather cooperates, you’ll then get the opportunity to head outside and look through the telescopes to spot the real celestial sights in the skies above. If the weather doesn’t play fair, you’ll receive a rain check voucher to come back another time to experience the telescopes.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for shows. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.
