Accommodation near Johannesburg Planetarium

The Johannesburg Planetarium is situated in Milner Park, Braamfontein.

It's the primary educational centre for scholars, researchers and academics who study astronomy in Gauteng

The Planetarium was opened in 1960, after a Zeiss Projector was bought from Hamburg, Germany and renovated. When it opened, it was the first full-sized planetarium in Africa, and the second in the Southern Hemisphere.

The modern-day Plantarium hosts about 70 000 visitors per year, many of them school children who come to learn about constellations based on star signs and gain an understanding of the movement of the moon in relation to the Earth through high-tech satellite images and telescopic views.

The Planetarium is owned by the City of Johannesburg and as astronomy is not offered at university, the planetarium provides academic support to students and is used by astronomers at other centres. The planetarium hosts a series of exhibitions and workshops which are seasonal and based on realtime conditions in Johannesburg's night skies.

A variety of regular shows, lecture series, night events, school shows and family shows are held throughout the week.
