Whether you are a child or an adult with a desire to dream and have fun, come and experience the magic of Christmas in our museum.

Here are some of the news you will find in our Planetarium:

  • 3D Planetary Show “Hidden Universe”: An extraordinary journey into the deepest Space, an adventure in the most remote regions of our Universe thanks to real images captured by the most powerful telescopes in the world – and seen for the first time on the screen and in IMAX 3D . Breathtaking 3D and high resolution images of Space to explore the first galaxies, watch the stars rise, travel the surface of Mars and admire beautiful images of the Sun and celestial structures light years away from us. A new vision of the origins and evolution of the universe.
  • Live Show 2D Planetarium Live “The Christmas Stars”: During Christmas’ time, it is natural to immediately think of the bright star that would guide the Three Kings on their long journey from the East to Bethlehem. Under what sky did the Magi travel at the time, so just over 2000 years ago? Was the sky of the Magi the same as what we see today? They followed the bright star, but where was the Polar Star? Was it the same as today? Answers to these and other questions about the astronomical, therefore also cultural, importance of the winter sky will be given to the public during the live show at the Planetarium curated by the Neapolitan Amateur Astronomers Union (UAN). Visitors will get a December sky map, with the largest constellations and the brightest stars.
