The Planetarium is a multifaceted organisation dedicated to astronomy education for all levels, from nursery through to retirement age. It is the Planetarium’s unique ability to adapt to changing audience needs that have enabled it to stay at the forefront of science education since its formation.
There is a free car park at the Planetarium, with two disability parking spaces. Although the main entrance has steps up to it, there is a ramp for people with restricted mobility or who use a wheelchair.
The Main Reception has a wheelchair accessible counter and a ramp access to all parts of the ground floor of the main building. A lift at the front of the building allows access to the first floor and the Digital Theatre.
Dedicated viewing areas have 9 available for wheelchair users within the Theatre. Two unisex, wheelchair accessible toilets in the building, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor. Unfortunately there is no available adult sized changing bench or hoist in them.
An Induction Loop for those who require Assisted Hearing facilities available in both the Digital Theatre and the reception area. All main signs in the building have information duplicated in braille, as do the lift controls. Guide dogs and Assistance dogs are welcome.
