Step aboard for an extraordinary scientific journey to the heart of Life, the Earth and the Universe. The planetarium has a permanent exhibition entitled "Journey to the Centre of the Universe" and an area of 1500 m² filled with all kinds of information about the Big Bang and the evolution of life and species. A regularly updated series of a dozen 360° films is shown in the panoramic cinema, and temporary exhibitions about science and scientific news are put on one after the other. There are also workshops in which you can discover amazing phenomena, and a special story area where story-tellers, readers or puppeteers tell science-related stories.
