Museums Wellington - Space Place Family Entry

 

Take a journey into space at Space Place at Carter Observatory.

Explore the wonders of the southern skies at Space Place. 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.

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, Thursdays and Saturdays) as weather permits. 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.

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

    Great for all ages

    We have 4 children 10 month, 5 yrs, 12yrs and 17yrs and they all enjoyed the movie and the interactive activities throughout the museum, but it would be better if we could choose what movie we want to watch rather having a set movie on at a set time. Overall, we all enjoyed it thank you.
