Planetarium Show

Join us on Thursday 27 June for some late-night shows in the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium. We’ll have on offer:

The Sky Tonight is a live presentation by one of our Science Communicators which details what you could see if you were to go stargazing in Dunedin that evening. Learn about stars and constellations and how to find them in the night sky, as well as fascinating deep space objects.

Zealandia: Life on the Hidden Continent details one of the greatest geological discoveries of our time – the discovery of an eighth continent, mostly hidden under the Pacific Ocean. Created by Otago Museum and NHNZ, this show explains how the continent Zealandia was formed, and how it supported such a unique collection of wildlife.

Shows run for 45 minutes each, and admittance to the planetarium is restricted to ages 3 years and up. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available from the Otago Museum Shop or online.
