We’re putting on our thinking hats and piecing together the puzzles of the planets! Our Solar System is filled with weird and wonderful worlds.

Why are there gigantic lightning strikes on Jupiter? What’s up with the acid rain on Venus? What causes the dust devils on Mars? Come and explore these peculiar planets with us. 

Get your first peek at the planets in the Space Room. You’ll play with hands-on experiments and crafty fun to discover the uniqueness of each of our neighbours in space. Piece together the order of the planets, explore the Martian landscape, swoop across the foreign surfaces with virtual reality headsets, explore augmented reality with spacecraft on foreign worlds or play with the Jupiter plasma balls!

Then, you’ll head outside (if the weather cooperates) and launch water-powered rockets. Finish up with the planetarium experience where you’ll start with a short kids planetarium live Night Sky show. Find out what planets you can see in the sky from Auckland.

Then, catch the show Wildest Weather in the Solar System where you’ll climb aboard a make-believe spacecraft and will soar onto the surface of the planets for an up-close and personal look.

Don’t forget to book. Seats are limited. Get puzzling!
Recommended ages 5-12 years.

Bookings essential online or on 09 624 1246. Please arrive 15 minutes before the session. Late entry is prohibited.
