Discover the Night Sky

Enjoy a special evening under the stars at the Melbourne Planetarium with expert astronomers.

Take your seat at the centre of the Universe for illuminating astronomy classes presented live in the dome. Each session explores a different feature of Melbourne's night sky and the incredible wonders of the cosmos.

Ponder some of the most fundamental questions of our existence and the Universe in the immersive environment of the Planetarium.

Following the class, take the opportunity to meet our expert astronomers as well as mingle with others. Continue the conversation while enjoying a complimentary glass of wine with cheese.
