The planetarium, which was upgraded in 2012 from normal system to a”full-dome” digital system, can accommodate 60 people and has a domed ceiling of 11 meters. There are several projectors that can create spectacular panoramas of space.
Some of the attractions include:
- A special Astronomy programme (Uniview) is a complete classical planetarium which includes all the planets and thousands of stars, constellations, galaxies and comets. It is a visualisation and simulation software aimed at presenting and teaching astronomy, astrophysics and earth sciences.
- Laser shows with different types of graphycis and music.
- A new sophisticated sound system combines to give the visitors a multimedia experience of the wondrous sights of the universe.
- Translating systems for all shows (Arabic - English) so visitors can choose the language in which they prefer to enjoy the show.
