About Cosmos Planetarium

Join the team from Cosmos Planetarium on an amazing voyage of discovery searching for extraterrestrial life. We will blast off to Mars and learn about the robotic explorers sent to its surface, then travel to distant planets and moons. Dive into vast alien oceans and travel to the outer reaches of the cosmos in search of life elsewhere in the Universe.

Shows will be taking place throughout the day on a first come first served basis. This activity is included with admission to the Dynamic Earth exhibition and is free for Explorer Pass holders.

Age 5+

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cosmos Planetarium are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
