Museums Wellington - Space Place Entry

 

Explore the wonders of the southern skies at Space Place.

Take a journey into space at Space Place at Carter Observatory. Their planetarium offers a state of the art, digital experience that’ll take you on an unforgettable journey from Wellington to the outer regions of our Solar System and beyond.

You’ll discover the sheer scale of the Universe and its origins in the Big Bang, the Maori story of creation, and examine the possibility of life on other planets. Travel through Space Place's very own black hole, handle a space rock and launch a rocket! Telescope viewings are held using the Thomas Cooke telescope during late nights (Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays) as weather permits.

This is a fun, interactive and educational experience for the whole family.

    Great for all ages!

    Really enjoyed the film with Astronaut Chad getting killed in everyway possible - our ages ranged from 6 to 48 and we all had a good laugh. Then the local sky briefing with how to find Matariki and due south, and why the planets travel in a line across the sky was really interesting too.

    Space Place

    These guys do a nice job. Different shows that should appeal to different age groups. We also walked into town and around the gardens. You can send an hour of all day discovering things. If you can use bookme you’ll also save a few $.
