Planetarium closure 10 February-9 March 2019: We are excited to announce the Melbourne Planetarium will be upgrading its state-of-the-art visual system to one that is brighter and three times the resolution of the current system. The upgraded system will give you an even better, immersive and awe-inspiring astronomical experience. The Planetarium will be closed during this period. Be the first to book our new Planetarium show Moonbase ONE and experience the difference with the new visual system.
The Earth's climate is alive.
Since the planet was born, the climate has changed with the passage of time, the seasons, with the ebb and flow of life itself. Now our fragile climate faces a new crisis, one that threatens life from the highest mountains to the ocean floor: climate change caused by humans.
Our Living Climate examines climate change throughout the Earth’s history. It looks closely at our planet’s place in the solar system, how our climate first evolved and how it has been transformed by weather patterns, Ice Ages and the appearance of new life forms.
A dramatic and different way of looking at climate and climate change, this visually spectacular story is about the greatest scientific challenge of our time.
Suitable for ages 10 years and up.
Please note: sessions during school hours may include school groups.
