Changing Skies

- a journey from the heavens above to the beginning of the universe

Inside the inflatable dome of our digital planetarium we will take you on a journey from the sky above Munich back to the beginnings of the Universe. Visit our neighbouring planets and observe the sun close-up. Find out interesting details about a star’s life, from birth until its death in a bright and explosive supernova. Come and travel with us even further – out of our Milky Way to remote galaxies and to the origin of the universe.

The show has been designed by our scientists themselves to present some of the work being done at the institute in a unique setting. It is being presented live by our scientists so it can easily be adapted to the age level and previous knowledge of visitor groups (esp. school classes) as well as the pace of the group and questions being posed.

The planetarium can fit about 25 people. Wheel-chair access possible.
