Planetario de Pamplona

Planetario de Pamplona (Calle Sancho Ramirez e/Av. Barañain, Pamplona) – built in 1993 and located adjacent to Parque de Yamaguchi, it attracts over 200,000 visitors annually. The origins of the universe as well as the latest discoveries in the field of astronomy are the subject of the numerous expositions projected up onto the impressive dome of the Tornamira Hall, which measures in at 20 meters in diameter – making it one of the largest of its kind in the world!

 

The Tornamira projection room uses sophisticated systems for projecting stars, planets, and all kinds of image, video and special effects. Regular shows for every type of audience are held, combining themes related to astronomy with our own cultural environment. Each season, the Planetarium puts on varied programs, with such evocative titles as “Lights at Night”, “Looking towards the Heavens” and, for children, “The Night of the Vampire” and “Star School”. This is a perfect all-weather activity for people of all ages, particularly those interested in the sciences. Admission: €4 (adult), €3 (child) – free admission to other areas of the planetarium. Hours: 9:30 am – 1:30 pm & 4:00 pm – 7:30 pm (Tuesday – Friday), 10:30 am – 1:30 pm & 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm (Saturday). Closed on Sundays, Mondays and holidays.
