  • We went to the Christmas Night sky show, which started with a bit of a lead in to the " Christmas Star" what was it.. that led the wise men to the birth of Jesus...and the commentator was just a littl...  more »
  • Travelled a long way across auckland to get there, only for it to be closed for a function.. had checked their social media beforehand which indicated it was open. Pretty poor really 
  • 一個認真逛大約40分鐘會結束的景點,奧克蘭夏天比較晚天黑,大約晚上8點多吧,所以如果想觀星,要晚上9點以後,而這裡的營業時間是到晚上9點半。天氣晴朗時逛到戶外可以用高倍率望遠鏡看星星喔,昨晚的火星看起來像個帶著淡紅色的鑽石還有一個很有趣的鏡子大家可以去體會 另外門口還有簡體中文版的奧克蘭旅遊資訊,裡面有些折扣券,來奧克蘭旅行別錯過了!

  • Went to 1pm with grandchildren... pity the dog story was from an Australian point of view... thought something could have been a little more home grown.... The second half was better but perhaps a little more passion and enthusiasm from the narrator 'astronomer' may gave made the show a little more alive. My grandson had some questions thatthe Mc said he would be available for. .. but disappeared straight after the show...😕
  • A great place to start stargazing career.....may need more multimedia display, the items in the shop a every expensive!
  • We always went here for school trips it was a fun experience
  • Excellent shows on planets, worth going to
