An open window to the sky, the Épinal planetarium invites you to spend a while as close as you can possibly get to our Universe.
Give free rein to your imagination and visit constellations through time, discover the movement of the stars and pierce the mysteries of the cosmos.
The Épinal planetarium is equipped with a new projection system, fully controlled by a digital simulator, producing the third best image of the world after ones in the United States and Japan.
The only one of its kind in this region, it is a real invitation to travel the cosmos whilst remaining comfortably settled on Earth. You can explore our Solar System, travelling to the Moon, Mars or even Saturn, and heading out on a tour of the Galaxy. Treat yourself to this rare experience and go home with the stars in your eyes.
In this 58-seater theatre you’ll find you don’t have to wait for fine weather and night to fall to get your telescope out; the stars reveal their secrets before your very eyes, and our presenters show you how to recognise them.
Whether on your own or with your family, young or old, come and discover the sky as you’ve never seen it before.
