New Planetarium shows are out of this world!

New Planetarium shows are out of this world!

World Museum’s Planetarium launches a brand new programme of shows beginning on Monday 20 June.

Totally brilliant and ‘out of this world’, they’re fantastic ways to educate young and old alike about the magnificence of space and the ongoing scientific research and discovery that is taking place to help us learn more about planet Earth and its universe.

Join Scooter, IQ and Nat, the stars of our newest show, Fly me to the moon. The animated adventure is aimed at our youngest space fans aged three and above.

Earth, Moon and Sun, a fast-paced, fun show that explores lunar phases and eclipses, is suitable for ages five and over, while From Earth to the Universe is perfect for adults and children over the age of 11. Viewers go on a journey of cosmic discovery that takes in the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes.

Along with the Destination Space programme of education events such as this one, the new Planetarium shows will engage anyone who has looked up into the sky and wondered about the universe around them. Visitors of all ages can immerse themselves in the cosmos and take a journey through our solar system and the vastness of space.

Our three new shows will be part of the current Planetarium programme, with five shows on afternoons from 2pm during term-time. Shows will also run all day from 10:30am on weekends and in school holidays – so there will be plenty of opportunity to blast off into space from right here in Liverpool.

Tickets are available from the Info Desk at World Museum, priced £2.50 for adults, £1.50 for children (3 to 18 years) and children under three go free. A family ticket is available for £7 and National Museums Liverpool adult members pay £1.25, while family member groups pay £3.50. The last show of the day at 4.30pm is free.
