Covid-19 Lockdown

Due to lockdown requirements our facilities are closed until further notice.

Social distancing is very difficult in the darkness of both the planetarium and observatory environments. Those who have an extended bubble may feel it is safe to come as a group, but remember our volunteers are not in your bubble.

We will be reviewing our status regularly as the government guidelines are released, and annoucing our re-opening with great fanfare once it is safe to do so.

We hope to be able to bring the Matariki stories to you this year, thankfully it is later with July 13 being the actual date.
