  • Lived in NI all my life and had never been, so on the spur of the moment made a visit to the Planetarium a reason to go to Armagh. We picked the Capcom show. I'm old enough to remember the Apollo...  more »

  • Great place for a day out with the kids. They have lots to look at and some very interesting exhibits. Make sure you see the movie that is projected onto the planetarium ceiling. The parking was fine but the food on site wasn't up to much, but not so bad that it had any effect on our day out. I'll definitely pay it another visit.
  • Excellent day out. Our son really enjoyed it. Staff were so nice answering his many, many questions. They even put on an extra bit of a show for him showing images of Pluto, his favourite (ex) planet. We made our own moon lander in the art and craft room. Dressed up in astronaut costumes. We launched our own water rocket. Super fun. I cant recommend this place enough.
  • Usual exhibitions on show and workshops that the kids like. We went today for a show on 'the science of dragons' by Scientific Sue. Would certainly recommend any shows of hers. Very audience interactive and very nicely explained science via many experiments.
  • Myself and my 4 year old visited by recommendation yesterday and we weren't disappointed! We spend three hours there and would have stayed longer if we had had the time. We watched 'the accidental astronauts' which was absolutely fantastic!! Then we made rockets, twice, with the help of a super young man who gave us advice on how to make our own at home. A wonderful asset to the team! I highly recommend this little gem to spend some highly educational and fun filled hours. We'll be back!
  • Built to rocket's, fired them and watched amazing film presentation of which there are a number of choices. Great day out for children of all ages including the 14 yr olds I had with me. Some interactive activities especially for older children would have been nice especially as space exploration brought us these new technologies which are absent.
