Enjoy astronomy shows, stargazing, telescopes, scifi and school holiday fun at Stardome, one of Auckland’s top visitor attractions.
Stardome has recently reopened after a significant renovation. Its new galleries are vibrant and hands-on, and place science and mātauranga Māori alongside each other with the aim of reconnecting people to the cosmos.
The content, in combination with the planetarium and telescope viewing, offers visitors a chance to learn how to identify stars and planets in the skies above Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. It
Stardome is also the first place in Aotearoa New Zealand to offer a comprehensive star map with the Māori names of whetū, planets and constellations.
Stardome’s Matariki show ‘Matariki – Te Whetū o te Tau Hou (The Stars of the New Year)’, is the perfect way to celebrate and admire the beauty of our phenomenal night skies, and runs until the end of July. From August onwards they will offer a regular seasonal Māori astronomy show, depending on the season.
