An attraction that can be enjoyed by the entire family, the Bangkok Planetarium offers visitors a chance to reach for the stars! The planetarium itself is part of the Science Center for Education that is home to its own aquarium, interactive and educational displays for children as well as various other exhibits including those related to information technology and the natural world we live in.
The oldest of its kind in the city, the Bangkok Planetarium gives those interested in space exploration a chance to learn about the history of travel in outer space as well as experience various other aspects concerning astronomy, the solar system and the planets that call it home.
Launched in 1964, the Bangkok Planetarium has an approximately 13 meter high dome that spans roughly around 20 meters. With a seating capacity of 450 people, the domed theater within the building makes use of a Mark IV Zeiss projector to provide audiences with a visual journey through space.
Manufactured by the famed Carl Zeiss Company, the Mark IV Zeiss projector used in the Bangkok Planetarium was developed in Oberkochen in West Germany and was the first of its kind in the region when it was installed. The projector still continues to captivate audiences and offers an entertaining and educational experience for young and old alike.
Exploring the far reaches of space is not something one would associate with a trip to Bangkok, but the Bangkok Planetarium gives one a chance to do just that. With various other exhibits and interactive elements also on hand both at the planetarium and at the Science Center for Education which it is a part of, this attraction is well worth a visit for the family.
