You’ll find Island Planetarium within the Fort Victoria Country Park, and this Yarmouth attraction is always a hit with the whole family. The attraction takes visitors on an enthralling journey through space, igniting the imagination with the astrodome theatre and the detailed exhibitions that bring the universe to life.
Ever wondered what it feels like to stand on the surface of the moon or how it would feel to float off into the darkest depths of outer space? Well, with a visit to the Star Theatre you’ll be able to get as close as possible to experiencing both. The planetarium includes engaging exhibitions inspired by the scientist Robert Hooke who hailed from nearby Freshwater in 1635, and they tell the tale of the universe in an engaging way that everyone can understand.
The planetarium also shows a variety of films aimed at all ages from 8 years and up, and they range from guided talks about what there is to look out for in the night skies to fun films about the big questions – such as are we alone in the universe? Each film lasts for 25 minutes, so make sure you leave enough time to enjoy everything at this unique attraction.
