The Southend Planetarium is the only public Planetarium facility in the south-east outside of London. It offers visitors a unique experience with changing talks throughout the year, exploring the night sky.

All our presentations are given live, giving you plenty of opportunities to question our knowledgeable lecturers. Each show can seat around 20 people.

Public shows run every Saturday and Sunday at 2pm. Pre-booking is essential, please contact us on 01702 212345 to confirm seat availability and current programme.

The Planetarium is situated on the first floor within Central Museum. We regret that currently there is no disabled access to this floor.
