“The solar system in the living room”

Eise Eisinga Planetarium
Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Franeker
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 27, 2010

Accurate scale model of the solar system. All the planets, stars, sun and moon in the Planetarium move exactly as they do in reality. All driven by a mechanism made of wooden disks with more than 10,000 nails serving as gear teeth. Every visitor receives an explanation in the planetarium room. It's a short visit.

This planetarium was constructed in a house on a living room ceiling in 1774-81 by Eise Eisingen . Eise was awool comber and amateur astronomer. This visit was unique and an absolutely unexpected delight whilst touring Friesland.
