Glasgow Science Centre Planetarium

The Planetarium

Connecting With the Cosmos

The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular state-of-the-art fulldome digital projection system.

In our live presenter-led shows, delivered by our expert team of astronomers and science communicators, we will take you on journeys through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out of this world experience.

We will also show spectacular fulldome films, displayed 360° across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium giving a truly immersive experience. “Back to the Moon for Good”, narrated by Tim Allen - the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Disney’s Toy Story - and "We Are Aliens", narrated by Rupert Grint, will be amongst the first fulldome films shown at the planetarium.

On weekdays the planetarium runs a mix of public shows and school group shows, covering all stages of the Curriculum for Excellence, and public shows on afternoons, weekends, and holidays.

Marvel at our brand new Space Zone while you wait to board the planetarium and lift off into the cosmos for the journey of a lifetime.
