The Life Science Centre is home to the most popular planetarium in Britain, and with its reclining seats, it's probably the comfiest too!
Life’s planetarium offers a mix of traditional planetarium shows and creative animation films to explore the wonders of our solar system. We have films especially for the very young, and for the amateur astronomers among you, our Live Skies presenter-led planetarium shows offer the chance to meet up with like-minded enthusiasts and discuss the stars and planets. Due to popular demand... We've increased the frequency of our Live Skies shows - Now you can enjoy presenter-led planetarium shows once a day every weekend and during school holidays!
Please note that during term time before 2pm, the planetarium can be busy with school visits and some of the scheduled shows may not be available. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.
The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop.
