Children over the age of 6 are welcome at the Planetarium without a chaperon. Please, note that the chaperon should wait for the end of the Planetarium show nearby. At the end of the show, or if it is necessary during the show, the chaperon must take care of the child.
There are no chairs at the Planetarium – visitors sit on cushions. Please, bear in mind that it is not suitable for the physically challenged.
The magical constellations
Did you know that the sky above us is full of tales of brave heroes, beautiful princesses and spooky monsters? In the past people connected the bright stars across the night sky in various figures, called constellations. Each one of them tells stories of interesting secrets and breathtaking adventures, which you could reveal at Muzeiko’s Planetarium. And when you get tired you should get some rest upon the Sun or Sirius. Enjoy an amazing walk among the stars, which starts here on Earth, and goes through the endless stellar space.
Before you go to sleep tonight look at the sky, and all those sparkling lights, scattered all over it. Some of them are stars, and some – giant star cities called galaxies. Some are planets, more or less alike our own planet Earth. But how do we know which is which? Muzeiko’s Planetarium is here to help! Here you will turn into genuine space discoverers, and you will know what’s visible over the night skies (and have a surprising story to tell your friends and parents!). You will embark on a real space adventure reaching the nearest planets and some of the most fascinating stars.
Walking through the Solar System
Is there life on Mars? How about Venus? What are the differences between planets from the Solar System? How to distinguish a star from a planet? At Muzeiko’s Planetarium we take a journey to all our neighboring planets. While searching for extraterrestrial life in space, we find out why people don’t fall off the other side of Earth, thanks to a mysterious force called gravity. We will also discover what lies at the end of the Solar System, how ice giants exist, and why the Sun has spots.
