From Our Editors

A centre of astronomy and cosmic intrigue, Armagh Planetarium was established in 1968, and has been educating the curious in matters of the stars and space ever since. The centre has a large programme of interactive shows that are shown through a Digistar 5 Projection System to fill audiences with awe. The planetarium also has a history of technical innovation, remaining at the forefront of its field throughout its lifespan; this has included pioneering an electronic audience participation system, and, in 1980, featuring the world’s first-ever completely interactive planetarium show, the likes of which have now been adopted worldwide.

It might be nice if the cafe was open for a decent cup of coffee at lunch time.

I went here with my son and his friend who are both 12/13 and have an interest in astronomy, but found the show catered for young children ie 4-6 year old so the show was pretty boring.

It was many years ago id visited but found it just as enjoyable as before - i would recommend to planetarium that they introduce age limits for the shows as it has hard to hear the commentator with screaming babies and toddlers shouting and climbing and fidging around the lovely newly upholstered seats and oblivious parents who cant control their children - under 6's should not be allowed in to theatre or a suggestion possibly a creche facility outside the theatre ??? i certainly will come back as displays very good and staff more than helpful and very nice maybe next time we will be able to hear the commentary
