Sir Tom Planetarium is a well-known science museum and planetarium in Brisbane. It is suitable for bringing children. The museum is actually very mini. We watched all the models and photos in 30 minutes at a very slow speed.
Really cool placeExcellent place for people of all ages. I was there just before the upgrade closing and still really enjoyed it. The staff makes this place worth visiting. Because it’s a smaller venue they take a more personal touch than some of the larger planetariums I’ve been to around the world. Highly recommend a visit here especially if you’re making your way up to Mt Coot-tha lookout.
Sir Tom Planetarium is located at the entrance of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. It is the only independent planetarium in Australia and the favorite place for Neil Armstrong as a child. There are many different types of telescopes, and there are dedicated staff to help visitors point out the location of the planets. The planetarium also regularly holds exhibitions and scientific and educational film screenings.
The museum is actually very small. We watched all the models and photo descriptions in 30 minutes at a very slow speed. Waiting for Passport to Universe at 2 o'clock, 13.2 dollars, student price 10.8 dollars, enter the dome to watch, first introduce the major stars in the Milky Way where the earth is. Then the instructor introduced the Southern Cross with the observation map of the real-time astronomical telescope, and explained how to look at the twelve constellations. You can see the telescope in the center of it rotating, which is really eye-opening.
After visiting the botanical garden, I saw the planetarium, take the children to visit it, and cultivate interest.
