Round Trip to the Moon

We visited the Earth’s moon for the first time 50 years ago, but there is a total of 198 marvelous moons in our solar system.

The visit to the Moon gave us valuable knowledge of Earth’s history and the formation of the solar system, but if we travel to the distant corners of the universe, we find moons that may be even more fascinating and contain even more answers about the origin of life.

In a series of activities, Planetarium focuses on our own moon, the Apollos landings from 1969 to 1972 and the 197 marvelous moons that we have not yet visited. Join the moon party and hear wild stories about our own and other planets moons.

All days during the school holidays and weekends

This summer on the 20 th July, it is 50 years ago since the first man set food on the Moon. Take a Moon walk in our exhibition, be inspired by the fascinating moon tales in the Dome theatre and be thrilled by science shows about the science of the most beautiful moons in our solar system.

Is there life in space, what happens if you fall into one of the volcanoes on the moon of Triton and which Apollo mission brought the Planetarium moon rock back to earth?

Moon Walk in the Planetarium

We turn back time to 1969 when the first people landed on the Moon and let you walk in the astronauts’ footsteps.

We have organized a moonwalk where you carry out fun astronaut tasks, choose an Apollo
mission (those who landed on the moon) and find out where it landed. Who knows, maybe you also find a moonstone like the one we have at the Planetarium.

Collect your Moon Walk booklet in the Planetarium’s shop.

Come by and learn about how a moon is not just a cold gray desert but can also have a thick atmosphere and wild volcanoes.

Moon Talk in the Dome Theatre

We are going to explore our solar system just as it has been done before with probes to the
furthest regions.

We start with a short story about our moon and the missions we have previously sent there.

After this we move out to the outer moons and give you insight into their amazing properties. From cryo volcanoes to the powerful tidal forces that the gas planets expose their moons to. The Moon Talk is in English, so it is suitable for adults and English-speaking children.

Time: Daily 4 p.m.
