Housed under a striking 35-meter diameter golden dome, the planetarium can seat 325 people and performs its wizardry over a 180-degree semicircular screen with the help of an IMAX projector and ZEISS planetarium system. Seats are inclined at 25~30 degrees to make you feel as if you are up with the stars.

First floor displays introduce ancient astronomy, the Earth, and space and science technologies. On the second floor, visitors can learn more about celestial spheres and constellations and the solar system. And telescopes, observatories the exhibits on the stars, the Milky Way and galaxies are located on the third floor. PDA guide services are also available. The top floor is occupied by two observatories and a radio telescope. The second observatory is open during the day and on Saturday nights from 19:00 to 21:00. It is also open during solar and lunar eclipses, the Chinese Valentines Day (the seventh day of the seventh lunar month), Mid-Autumn Festival, and other special astronomical days.

    Hidden Gem


    Lots of interactive displays. A 4-storey museum with lots of cool displays. The entrance fees for adults is only 60NT and for children 30NT. Can spend about 3-4 hours there. There are extra complimentary sessions (in Chinese ) on the constellations in their planetarium dome on Saturday which I enjoined and learnt a lot in the short 20 mins. Saw guided tours for pri school kids on Saturday 4-5pm with hands on activity at the end for them too in December when I visited. A place for both adults and kids, for those who wants to learn more about astronomy.

    Worth a visit


    This museum is next to the science museum. We only experienced the main exhibits on the first 3 floors covered by the general admission fee and we didn’t join the other optional paying attractions like watching a film about Mars in the theater. Most of the exhibits here are very interactive and informative. Interacting with them and properly reading through each of them will take a while. There are also some simulators there which are quite interesting.

    Astronomical Museum


    Seen and learned a lot at the Astronomical Museum. There are 4 floors of interactive displays, dioramas and plenty of practical effects to educate you on our world and its place in the cosmos.

    Perfect for kids


    This was a great place for our kids - indoors for hot weather or raining. Many exhibits were hands on and had both Chinese and English information. Large enough to keep their attention and very scientific, but not too large that we felt nervous about letting them run around. We enjoyed a short “ride” which also had English translation and the kids LOVED it - I highly recommend the space ride. It was easily accessible from the MRT and short taxi ride.
