Brno Observatory and Planetarium

This has existed since 1954, when it was a single dome with a small telescope. Today, it is a modern center that in an understandable, entertaining and interactive way popularizes all sorts of science, especially in the field of inanimate nature – primarily astronomy, but also geology, physics, chemistry, and more.
During a visit to the Brno Observatory and Planetarium you can take a virtual trip into space, look into a microcosm, or just enjoy a science fiction story.
The facility, of course, includes an astronomical observatory, where modern telescopes provide views to craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter, sunspots, but also objects in the distant universe.
The Digitarium (digital planetarium) will amaze you with its perfect illusion of a starry sky projected onto a screen 17 meters in diameter. The “small planetarium” has a dome with a diameter of 8 m.
For the latest scientific insights into the history of our planetary system, visit the new exhibition at the Exploratorium.
