ESO Open House Day 2014

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

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, tourists, event participants and scientists.

Special events, such as evening talks, can take place outside these opening hours. Please check the programme for more details.

ESO Supernova is closed every Monday. In addition we are closed around the Christmas period on 24, 25 and 31 December, and on 1 January.
