What is the HR MacMillan Space Centre?

  1. Planetarium
    The leading-edge technology of the Zeiss projector creates a 360-degree view of the heavens seen from Vancouver.
  2. Virtual Voyages Motion Simulator
    The full-motion simulator combines science and drama animating the excitement of space travel. The virtual voyage experience is split into two separate sections: a pre-show where you are informed of you current mission and objectives and the second section is the actual ride itself where visitors climb aboard a 30-seat spacecraft, strap on their seatbelts and soar past earthly and heavenly spectacles.
  3. Laser Shows at the Planetarium Star Theatre
    Watch your favorite bands with dazzling visual effects in our Planetarium Star Theatre. Saturday and Sunday afternoon Laser Pop Power shows are free with regular daytime admission. Evening Laser Shows are an $10.00 plus G.S.T.
  4. Groundstation Canada
    This 90-seat multimedia theatre combines live action and audio-visual presentations. Programs provide regular updates of space news and space technology with special highlights of Canada’s role in space. These highly interactive shows where the audience is encouraged to participate run about 20 minutes in length.
  5. Cosmic Courtyard
    Visitors journey through several spheres of the universe, with Earth at the centre. They can enjoy their own personal look into space through video games, audio-visual presentations, news updates and facts.
