     Springtime Stars and Galaxies


    On Spring evenings - if the skies are clear - we can look beyond
    the veil of stars in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. As we look out
    into the wider universe we see countless other galaxies, many like
    our own, but many that are quite different.

    Come and explore this cosmic 'zoo' - dwarf galaxies, giant
    galaxies, weird galaxies, and some with supermassive black
    holes at their hearts.
Important Notice:
At the start of a Planetarium show, your eyes will take a few minutes to adapt to the dark. For this reason, latecomers cannot be admitted. To avoid this, please ensure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time.

Admission Prices: £7.00 for adults, or £5.00 for children under 16.

PLEASE NOTE that we are unable to accept credit or debit cards at present.

This show is suitable for children age 6 and upwards.


As space in our star theatre is limited, visitors for the public presentations are strongly advised to book tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

Tickets may be reserved by telephoning the Planetarium on 01243 774400, or the ticketline on 07818 297292.

If we are unable to deal with your telephone request for information immediately, please leave your name and telephone number and the nature of your enquiry and we shall call you back as soon as we can.

Tickets for the public presentations are also available, to personal callers only, from the Tourist Information Office in The Novium, Tower Street, Chichester.
