The Planetarium offers a unique experience, starting with a multimedia Digital Theatre Show.

Make the trip to Armagh Planetarium which offers visitors a unique experience which is quite simply “out of this world”. In the Planetarium’s amazing Digital Theatre you can relax and experience our planet and beyond; take a tour of the night sky, or even discover some of the myths behind the star constellations. Each show is a memorable experience and one that you will treasure.

After all that excitement, you can then explore the exhibition areas using the interactive displays to learn more about the cosmos. Take a trip into our Mars room or touch the largest meteorite on display in Ireland which at an amazing 4.6 billion years old, is the oldest thing you'll ever touch. See our scale models of probes such as Viking and Satellites such as the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope.

If you have the time, you can have a stroll around the Astropark, which displays a scale model of the Universe where visitors can walk through the Solar System into the Milky Way and beyond; or why not try some astronaut ice cream from our gift shop?

Armagh Planetarium is open Monday-Saturday from 10:00 - 17:00.
