  • We weren't entirely sure what to expect, but as something different, booked a show to take our 10 year old son to. We were pleasantly surprised at how informative the show was and how much we learned....  more »

  • I'm a repeat customer here, Consistently interesting. The staff are so helpful and the shows are amazing. My daughter loved the show and staff answered all her questions. Staff are very happy to talk to children and make them feel welcome. The displays are engaging and informative. Will be back :)
  • Very good place to learn about everything spacey, there's an awesome some like projector room in which you can watch some amazing shows. The place it's self is free to get in but you will have to pay to watch a show. You could probably walk around the exhibits in about 20 minutes as it's quite small
  • Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium is an amazing place to take kids to learn more about our solar system and beyond while having fun. This place is located within the Brisbane Mt Coot-tha Botanical gardens and is also close to the Mt Coot-tha lookout.
  • Went and saw the Bella Gaia Friday night show and it was spectacular! Everything was so well-presented and interesting. The staff were all amazing and very knowledgeable. ✨
  • Great showings, "black holes" and "dark universe" were both educational and fascinating. Not much to see other than the shows. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly.
