Rainy Day Activities: See the stars at Bristol's 3D Planetarium

Bristol

Located in the We The Curious science centre, the UK's only 3D Planetarium offers a unique perspective on the night skies with seasonal shows and special events.

Discover the secrets of our universe in the UK’s first 3D Planetarium. Fly through Saturn’s rings, journey to distant stars, see Earth from an astronaut’s perspective, glimpse inside a glowing nebula – all from the comfort of your seat inside We The Curious science museum's iconic silver orb, the 3D Planetarium. 

The spectacular shows are presenter-led and offer a completely immersive experience with 360° digital 3D, 4K Ultra High Definition and extraordinary surround sound. And with 2D-only versions of the experience (dedicated entirely to children under 6), your little explorers don't have to miss out! 

Pop in during a visit to the mind-blowing interactive exhibits and other indoor activities that make up We The Curious, or if it’s solely stargazing you’re after (and are over 16 years old), head down for one of their ‘Planetarium Nights’. These special 45-minute shows will transport you to an amazing array of astronomical destinations.
