“See the stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

If you like the stars as much as I do, this is the place to visit! You will learn a bit more about our solar system and planets.

Hidden treasure of Auckland. Hugely interesting presentations and wonderful facility to showcase the night sky.

“An inspiring visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

Was visiting the lovely Cornwall Park in which Stardome is situated, decided to drop in for a quick look. They had no planetarium shows on during the weekdays so I just looked around the foyer... half an hour later I was still learning new stuff! I saw a 2009 review below about poor displays etc, apparently the foyer was totally done up in 2010 and the foyer is full of amazing interactive exhibits like the rotating globe which you can control with a touch screen panel. Even better all this was free! Must come back to see a planetarium show sometime.

Such a great place to see the stars on a clear night. Also enjoyed a great Pink Floyd music visual show too.
