The International Space Station above the Earth as viewed from within the Planetarium at GSC

The Planetarium

Connecting with the Cosmos

The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre is a spectacular state-of-the-art fulldome digital projection system. In our live presenter-led shows, manned by our expert team of astronomers and science bods, we’ll take you on fantastic journeys through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond… it’s a truly out of this world experience.

You can also enjoy spectacular fulldome films, displayed 360° across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the Planetarium giving a truly immersive experience. Watch “Back to the Moon for Good”, narrated by Tim Allen – the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Disney’s Toy Story – and "We Are Aliens", narrated by Rupert Grint.

On weekdays the Planetarium runs a mix of public shows and school group shows, covering all stages of the Curriculum for Excellence, and public shows on afternoons, weekends, and holidays.

Marvel at our Space Zone while you wait to board the Planetarium and lift off into the cosmos for the journey of a lifetime.

Please note: Ten individual hearing loops are available in the Planetarium. Please speak to a member of staff if this would help you enjoy your experience.
