I took my 4 year daughter who - like me - loves learning about the stars and planets. Such a varied programme of films & talks means we’ll definitely return. Our guide was knowledgable and humorous and the show informative.
Wonderful to walk through the...More
First thing to note is that the on the door price is quite expensive. My advice is to become a one year "Royal Museum" Member. You can then take a look at all the Greenwich museums, and prebook tickets to the Planetarium at no additional...More
It was a last minute decision to book a show and I’m so glad we did. The guide was charismatic, funny, knowledgable and passionate about his subject.
The experience was absorbing and I throughly enjoyed it. Worth £10 of anyone’s money!!
Pleasant 30 minutes sat in very comfy seats but if I’m honest I didn’t think it was worth the money. Learnt a few facts but didn’t find it particularly entertaining maybe a different presenter would have made a difference.
We went to the sky at night session. The presenter was really entertaining and informative. It's 30 minutes and shows you what you can see in the sky that night, we thought it was brilliant, he explained the constellations, planets, moons, stars and galaxies.
I loved this! I thought it was a great way to spend 30 minutes of my life, especially as its included in our membership which really is fantastic value for money if you're visiting more than once. We've taken our daughter twice now and watched...More
We were not expecting much, just the usual 10-15 mins "space movie" show planetariums usually screen. It was nothing of the sort. Instead we were hosted by a great speaker who kept my teenagers fascinated and was quite funny and sarcastic in the typical British...More
We visited the Greenwich area to see the Cutty Sark, meridian line and the planetarium. The kids decided they wanted to see The Sky at Night show, it was really good, the seats were so comfortable and our astronomer was an excellent speaker who explained...More
You don't have to pay to see a lot of the exhibition, just the show. We saw one about dark matter and whilst I have seen much better in terms of viewing planets and stars, it was fascinating. Also worth a visit for the view...More
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a
laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
