Guided Tours

Experience the exhibition on your own, or join one of our ten guided tours. Competent and motivated guides will tell you the most interesting stories about ESO, and about astronomy in general. They will lead you to the secret highlights of the exhibition, and even into ESO Headquarters next door, answering any question you may have about astronomy!

Check out the daily schedule for guided tours in the programme. The starting point for all tours is in the Void, right next to the foyer.

Like the exhibition and the planetarium shows, the guided tours are free of charge!

If you want an even more personalised experience, you can book your own tour: Select the time, language, choose one of the spectacular theme tours, gather some friends, and off you go!

For practical reasons the guided tours are limited to 25 people. Please ensure that you reserve your tickets in advance for these events, either online here or by printing tickets from the kiosks in the entrance area of the ESO Supernova.
