Plan your Visit

Reach up for the stars

There is a new supernova over Munich and you should not miss the opportunity to check it out, regardless of your age.

From a fulldome planetarium to a modern and interactive exhibition with 13 different themes, guided tours and numerous special events, we offer many ways to get excited about astronomy. Join us and experience the Universe you live in!

We have developed programmes for families, schools, and other members of the general public.

In 2018 all activities are free, but bookings are necessary. To explore the exhibition on your own, you do not need a booking, but just to get a free entrance ticket when you arrive.
