Hi, I was just wondering, If I wanted to bring a Yr 5 class to see Solar System Odyssey to commence our space unit and begin our sustainability unit (saw it a couple of weeks ago and thought it would be perfect), do you have special prices for schools and does the price change if there was more than one class? Also are the prices the same for teachers and parent helpers? Just researching at the moment to see what would work out to be more cost effective and beneficial. Thanks, Leearna

Hi

Education groups are priced differently and shows also screen at different times and days to the public shows.  If you would like to make an education enquiry for the planetarium.  Please call our education number on 9392 4819, our staff members can take you through what is available to you and our pricing.

I was just wondering for the 4pm session, will Scienceworks be closing at 5pm?
MVBookings 4 July, 2013 13:43

Scienceworks will still be closing at 4:30pm throughout the school holidays and ticketholders for the extra Planetarium show at 4pm will exit the session immediately afterwards through the Planetarium exit at the side of Scienceworks. However, on Sunday 14th – the last day of the school holidays – the 4pm session will not run and Scienceworks will close at 4pm due to a scheduled power outage in the area beyond our control.

We hope to see you at the Planetarium.
