Enjoy a unique experience simply out of this world as Armagh Observatory and Planetarium re-opens

Make the trip to Armagh Observatory and Planetarium this Autumn which offers visitors a unique experience which is quite simply out of this world.

In the Planetarium’s amazing 360-degree Dome Theatre you can relax and experience our planet and beyond; take a tour of the night sky, or even discover some spooky space over the Halloween half-term.

Each show is a memorable experience and one that you will treasure.

After all that excitement, you can then explore the exhibition areas to learn more about the cosmos. Take a trip into our Mars room and look at the largest meteorite on display in Ireland which is an amazing 4.6 billion years old.

See our scale models such as the International Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope and let our presenters guide you through some amazing experiments that you can try at home.

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 Observatory and Planetarium has reduced visitor capacity and have social distancing measures in place throughout the building. Please note that pre-booking is essential for all visits.
