Need to know

Do you ever look up on a clear night and see the stars twinkling high up and you wonder “What is that star? Is it a planet or a moon of a far-away solar system?

Now you can.

Along with awesome space shows in a dome planetarium theatre, a gallery of NZ space exploration and the tuhuna module where you can land your own space ship, Space Place now offers exciting stargazing courses and events for beginners to amateur astronomers to catch up for scientists.
