This website aims to provide the most complete and current directory of UK planetaria. A planetarium featured on this site may be a huge star theatre with seating for over 100 visitors, or a small mobile dome catering for audiences of 20-30 that can bring the awe and wonder of the night's sky to your own venue. All share the common goal of providing interesting, educational and entertaining shows to schools, groups and members of the public.
As an organisation we are a friendly and supportive group of planetarium professionals. We keep up-to-date with advances in astronomy and planetaria technologies through regular communication and annual meetings where we can share our knowledge, skills and experiences.
