Pannon Observatory – Daytime programs

The ticket covers the following program package:

THE HISTORY OF ASTRONOMY EXHIBITION

An astronomical and space research exhibition is waiting for you on 400 m2 at the Pannon Observatory. You can get to know the famous Gibeon meteorite, some antique telescopes, the discoveries and experiments of Galileo and Newton, the astronomical navigation applied by sailors and the greatest expeditions of space research: the Moon mission (Apollo Program) and the exploration of Mars.

PLANETARIUM

The Pannon Observatory has the most modern digital planetarium of Hungary. The 3D picture with a resolution twice of the HD picture, projected onto the hemi-globe shaped dome with a diameter of 8 meters, together with the 5.1 surround sound system take us on an unforgettable cosmic journey while we are sitting in the armchairs known from the IMAX movies.
Attention! The ticket includes one planetarium show only!

Film+ tickets are available depending on the capacity of the planetarium.

The Realm of the Stars (22 minutes, for everybody from elementary school kids to seniors)

The shows start at every hour.

The new 3D planetarium show presents the life, development and annihilation of the stars, the various types of star clusters and the world of our galaxy, the Milky Way. Besides the special animations, you will see the starlit skyscapes of the Bakony and the Balaton Uplands.

An Oasis in Space (22 minutes, for everybody from elementary school kids to seniors)

It can be selected in the case of group registration or with the purchase of a film+ ticket.

The 3D planetarium show made by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science presents our Solar System, the planets and – among them – our Earth as an oasis in space.

This 3D super movie made by the Denver Museum of Nature & Science shows the mystery of the dark forces of the Universe and the cosmic “predators”.

TELESCOPE PARK

Under the telescope dome of the Observatory, which has a diameter of 5.5 meters, visitors will find a telescope park complying even with scientific requirements. In addition to showing the structure and operation of the telescopes, visitors can have a look at the Sun with the special H-alpha telescope if there are no clouds. Due to the currently increased Solar activity, it is an especially exciting discovery!

All these programs make up approx. 1.5-2 hours, as requested. Since the majority of the daytime program does not depend on the weather, the Pannon Observatory is a tourist destination that can be planned safely.
