A planetarium is a theatre for presenting educational and entertaining shows about astronomy and the night sky, or for training in celestial navigation.
Our telescope observation session is meant for those who love the night sky but don’t have the time or money to invest in these expensive equipment.
Solar (Sun) Observation is one of the activities you can do at the earlier hours of your visit at our Al Thuraya Astronomy Center.
Visit our Astro Cinema to enjoy a large selection of astronomy and non-astronomy related videos, movies, and documentaries.
