Planetarium Ostrava presents astronomical shows for pre-school and school children, students and general public.
Planetarium Ostrava was founded in 1980 as a part of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic. The sky theater presents astronomical shows for pre-school and school children, students and general public. It is the only educational facility of its kind in the city of Ostrava and the whole Moravian-Silesian Region. During a complete renovation between 2012 and 2014, Planetarium Ostrava got a new projection system (Evans and Sutherland’s Digistar 6) that includes digital fulldome and opto-mechanical projectors (GoTo Pandia).
