The Stardome Shop is filled to the brim with everything you’ll need for budding scientists, stargazers, toy enthusiasts, readers, researchers and everyone in between. Open during Stardome hours.
Please note: During the holiday season, Stardome is used for private venue hires. If you’re planning to peruse the shop on a particular day, we recommend checking to see if there is a private hire on here.
The Stardome shop has a wide range of fun puzzles, toys and books for space explorers young and old. Our book collection includes useful reference books, fun kids space stories and The New Zealand Astronomical Yearbook. We also stock Star Wars and LEGO products and don’t forget your astronaut icecream!
Science-lovers will love our range of science kits with solar-powered robots, tornado makers and rocket making kits. There’s kits of all sizes and all levels of difficulty and make great gifts for birthdays or Christmas.
For serious stargazing check out our selection of high-quality telescopes and binoculars. Our telescopes range includes models for beginners looking to explore the night sky from the backyard, and more powerful telescopes for experienced telescope operators.
Each year, the New Zealand Astronomical Yearbook highlights the events, discoveries and exploration of the night sky. Your copy can be purchased in store or ordered online here.
