Tycho Brahe Planetarium
Giant screen experiences every hour
The Tycho Brahe Planetarium & Omnimax Theatre is an advanced centre for popular astronomy and space research. Spectacular IMAX films are shown every hour in the Space Theatre, allowing you to experience nature in the world’s largest film format - or to watch the starry skies through the advanced star projector. The Planetarium produces its own star shows, laser shows and develops Danish versions of international IMAX films.
An IMAX film is an experience that can take your breath away - a gigantic 1000 m2 dome-shaped screen surrounds you and 256 other viewers and makes you feel that you’re part of the action.
Many IMAX films deal with the wonders of nature. You can take a trip into the cosmos, dive deep in the ocean, visit a space station, a coral reef, or go far beneath the dark surface of the sea. Be surrounded by chimpanzees and dolphins or fly high above the pyramids. Feel the rush when some of the world’s most adventurous daredevils challenge nature from tall cliffs and airplanes miles above the earth. As IMAX films are very popular, it’s a good idea to reserve seats on the Planetarium’s homepage.
Bringing knowledge to the public
The Tycho Brahe Planetarium takes pride in staying up to date with the latest scientific knowledge and presenting it so everyone understands it. When it comes to news from space, such as the Mars probe landing, reports from the International Space Station or a new comet, the Planetarium is always up to the minute. The “permanent” exhibition is far from permanent, but always current, and the public can follow events on the large screen or visit the huge space and astrology portals on the Internet with super-fast connections that allow visitors to make the most of every possibility.
The exhibition also addresses those big questions about the beginnings of mankind and whether there is life elsewhere in the universe. You’ll also get the latest news on black holes, quasars, gamma ray bursts if your brain needs a challenge!
The Planetarium offers both guided tours and group tours in addition to various school services.
