Entrance to the planetarium is free, but you’ll need a ticket to enter. Tickets are available on the day of the show from 10am until 5 minutes before the show starts (or until they are all gone, whichever is sooner).
Tickets are only available from the information desk on the ground floor and are on a first come first served basis, they can’t be pre-booked in advance.
Don’t forget to take a ticket on your arrival to the museum!
