The latest generation of planetariums emphasise teaching across multiple disciplines. All subject matter has a place in modern domes, which are now capable of visualising scientific and artistic concepts in ways that deeply resonate with diverse audiences. 

Planetariums are vital facilities for the curious of all ages, introducing all of us to new ideas and perspectives. Building the foundations for the next generation of engineers, inventors, artists, and problem-solvers.

Let the wonders of the universe wash over you in the new Planetarium.
