In celebration of Maori Language Week, the popular 'Matariki Dawn' planetarium show will be screening throughout the week.

‘Matariki Dawn’ looks at cultural and astronomical aspects of this group of spectacular stars. The show includes Maori myths and stories about the formation of the Earth, the Moon and Maori New Year.

Visitors can also see the stars of Matariki close up in the planetarium and find out why they appear at certain times of the year and not at others. The show includes courtyard telescope viewing (weather permitting).

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for shows. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.
