Planetarium - Must do!

We loved our experience at Space Place. It was quite easy to navigate as it was small, but hopefully it would get upgraded in the future. The planetarium show was amazing! We watched Dynamic Earth. The first half was a documentary, and the other half is like a presentation of one of the staff members there. She had such a great speaking voice and I absolutely enjoyed hearing her talk about space. We went a little early and it was a bit rainy so we didn't get to use the Telescope but this is just one more thing we can look forward to doing next time. Shout out to the wonderful staff there as well. They were all very accommodating, friendly and kind. We had no issues with our booking whatsoever. 5/5 for me :)

Great for all ages!

Really enjoyed the film with Astronaut Chad getting killed in everyway possible - our ages ranged from 6 to 48 and we all had a good laugh. Then the local sky briefing with how to find Matariki and due south, and why the planets travel in a line across the sky was really interesting too.
