During your visit you’ll have time to explore the exhibits in our Cosmic Courtyard gallery, watch a show in the Planetarium Star Theatre and our take in a live science demonstration in our GroundStation Canada theatre. Shows in the planetarium will change throughout the day - see details below. **If you are interested in coming to only see a show in the Planetarium Star Theatre book tickets for the 3:30 time slot.**

Our programming is recommended for families with children ages 8+. Children must be accompanied by adults. One ticket must be purchased for each member of your group, as we need to manage the number of people in our spaces.

Daytime programming is only available on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
