The Planetarium opened in 1968, and its home since 2009 has been the QVMAG Museum at Inveresk. The Planetarium operates a Zeiss ZKP3 star projector in conjunction with a fulldome digital system. Each year, thousands of people gaze up onto its famous dome to watch exciting feature presentations and to experience the thrill of feeling that they are out under the stars.

Please note the Planetarium is closed Sundays, Mondays and Public Holidays (with the exception of Mondays which fall within School Holidays). Planetarium shows are suitable only for ages five and up unless otherwise noted (shows marked with *), and an admission fee applies to all shows. Each of the shows includes a live description of the night sky over Tasmania.
