Our Astronomy shows and Full dome films are suitable for all ages and are projected throughout the inner surface of the dome to fully envelop the audience.
Our mobile planetarium dome is 6 metres in diameter and can sit up to 45 people. It is very easy to set up and take down and has a vertical zippered doorway for entry and exit without crawling or squeezing! Self-adjusting vents keep the dome inflated even if the power is cut.
