Explore the wonders of the Southern Hemisphere night sky from the comfort of your seat in our indoor digital dome planetarium, located in the Hermitage Hotel in Aoraki/Mount Cook. Science meets entertainment as one of our astronomy guides presents an awe-inspiring visual journey through the cosmos. Learn about the Southern Cross constellation, the Milky Way galaxy, the planets and moons of our solar system, the lives and deaths of stars and the mind-blowing scale of our universe. As one of only six planetariums in New Zealand, the 8.5-metre dome screen with our state-of-the-art projection technology is perfect for viewing some of the latest images captured by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. As an indoor, digital experience, it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside – the planetarium can simulate exactly what the New Zealand night sky looks like at any time under perfect conditions!
