Carter Observatory

Price from £12 per person

The Carter Observatory offers visitors a state of the art, digital planetarium with an almost limitless range of virtual space journeys, along with multi-media exhibits that tell the Mâori and European story of New Zealand’s southern skies and the role of the stars in navigation. Admission includes a 45 minute planetarium show that involves a pre recorded film followed by a live presentation on the stories of the southern skies; followed by a self guided walk through a series of galleries that take visitors from outer space to the skies above Aotearoa, to interactive space modules and current use of space technology. Telescope viewings are available on late nights (weather dependant).
