Thinktank Planetarium offers a wide range of shows about astronomy and space, including tours around the night sky, adventures around the solar system, and journeying to the edge of the universe.
In addition to astronomy, you can also travel through the human body; dive under the ocean; shrink to the size of an atom or allow yourself to be immersed completely in music and light.
Subtitled planetarium shows take place on a Friday afternoon and the first show on a Saturday and Sunday morning.
Thinktank planetarium often runs special events during the year to support significant events. Events in the past have included: evening astronomy talks, solar observing and even theatrical productions. Visit the What's On for details of upcoming events.
The planetarium is located on Level 3.
