Science North’s Planetarium is the first of its kind in Northern Ontario!
The digital technology, surround sound, and an 8.4-metre dome screen immerse audiences in voyages to the edge of the known universe, billions of light years away.
Also, Science North Staff Scientists use our comprehensive library of scientific data, ready-to-use educational materials, and advanced real-time production tools to teach more about the stars, planets and galaxies through live presentations.
Our stellar Bluecoats are ready to take you on a unique space adventure. We can tour the night sky, update you on current space missions, and respond to your questions and requests. Want to see your favourite constellation? Tour the solar system? Fly right out of our galaxy? Let us know!
30 minutes, for all ages
