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.

    Engaging and interesting

    We had a great time at Space Place. The staff were fantastic. The exhibition was interesting and engaging. We went on a fantastically clear night and saw Jupiter with 4 of its moons in alignment on a 150 year old telescope. The planetarium show was enjoyable and the staff member narrating the sky tour afterwards was charismatic and likeable. Highly recommended.

    A must visit!

    At first we thought it’s a small exhibition while our main purpose is to join the observatory. But I promise you that you can really spend some good quality time there going through every little detail which was designed interestingly. The space place is great too! They also get mandarin section during the high peach of Chinese visitors. Please do check their website to see what topic you are interested for the space place shows. The highlight of the night is the the Thomas Cooke observatory, no words to discribe this 150 years old beauty that is still in service, come and “see” for your own! * the late night observatory is only open 3 times a week, check before you go. If you don’t drive, the walk downhills to the city (Wellington museum side) is only about 15ish mins. 很推薦的博物館和天空劇場,大人小孩都可以花上一段時間去探索每一個小角落。時間允許請記得參加他們晚間的觀星活動(細節參考官網)。非常值得!不開車要下山的話,走園內的主幹道(不是車道)只要15來分鐘即可到達碼頭區。
