What our other visitors are saying
Staff are knowledgeable, the displays clear and interesting and when attending the night sessions the stars are explained in terms that are easy to understand for all ages. My 4 year old granddaughter was able to see specific stars and planets. Questions are welcomed. I would recommend a visit.
We have just finished our Big Sky Observatory tour and we all keep saying how amazing it was. We got to see Jupiter, Saturn with its rings and our moon up close with all of those craters. Great informative tour.
We also did the kids planetarium show in the afternoon and spent an hour looking at the interactive zone which was great.
Would definitely recommend this activity to anyone visiting here. Book your big sky show in advance as they get booked out.
Highly recommended a visit to the cosmos Centre. The night sky experience is fantastic. We learnt a lot about the night sky from our very knowledgeable guide.
We had an awesome experience for a little over 1.5hours our guide Ashley taught us all about Stars, Galaxies, Black Holes, Gravity and founded out the night with Jupiter and Saturn. It was a brilliant way to introduce our daughters to the wonders and scale of the universe. When you go ask for Ashley his in-depth knowledge was outstanding.
Brilliant evening we had. Having things explained in laymans terms made this all the better experience.
Thanks Cosmos centre and Les for a great afternoon and then evening.
