Housed under a striking 35-meter diameter golden dome, the planetarium can seat 325 people and performs its wizardry over a 180-degree semicircular screen with the help of an IMAX projector and ZEISS planetarium system. Seats are inclined at 25~30 degrees to make you feel as if you are up with the stars.

First floor displays introduce ancient astronomy, the Earth, and space and science technologies. On the second floor, visitors can learn more about celestial spheres and constellations and the solar system. And telescopes, observatories the exhibits on the stars, the Milky Way and galaxies are located on the third floor. PDA guide services are also available. The top floor is occupied by two observatories and a radio telescope. The second observatory is open during the day and on Saturday nights from 19:00 to 21:00. It is also open during solar and lunar eclipses, the Chinese Valentines Day (the seventh day of the seventh lunar month), Mid-Autumn Festival, and other special astronomical days.

    Seen and learned a lot at the Astronomical Museum. There are 4 floors of interactive displays, dioramas and plenty of practical effects to educate you on our world and its place in the cosmos.

    Perfect for kids

    2019-05

    This was a great place for our kids - indoors for hot weather or raining. Many exhibits were hands on and had both Chinese and English information. Large enough to keep their attention and very scientific, but not too large that we felt nervous about letting them run around. We enjoyed a short “ride” which also had English translation and the kids LOVED it - I highly recommend the space ride. It was easily accessible from the MRT and short taxi ride.

    Amazing place to learn about space!

    2018-12

    My 6 years old son really having a good time walk around the space museum. Less than 2 hours time is not enough to get thru everything since there are 4 floor levels. As an adult i have a good time too. There are translation in english for every explanation. Pros: - 4 floor levels space museum - lift available within the museum - english translation available for every activities - a lot of activities thru the museum - a lot of spot for fun photography - other attractions like space simulator, 4d, imax (need to pay separately) - full air coned - pretty modern and well maintained museum - young kids with pram, wheelchair accessible Cons: - only one small gift store - no cafetaria - if you’re not interest to space this is not a good place for you
