*** PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE SCHEDULE OF SHOWS ***

Home to the largest planetarium in Tasmania, visitors will be able to study the night sky and learn from our experienced staff, including resident expert and Principal Astronomer, Dr. Martin George.

Our Planetarium will take you on a journey through space and allow you to explore the universe, all from the comfort of Hive.

About our shows:

Phantom of the Universe – The Hunt for Dark Matter is a fascinating exploration of dark matter, from the Big Bang to its anticipated discovery at the Large Hadron Collider. Narrated by Tilda Swinton, this amazing story reveals the first hints of its existence. It describes the astral choreography witnessed by Vera Rubin in the Andromeda galaxy and then plummets deep underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth, housed in a former gold mine. From there, it journeys across space and time to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, speeding alongside particles before they collide in visually stunning explosions of light and sound. The minimum age for attendance to this show is five years, however, this show is better suited to an older audience, upper primary and above.

From Earth to the Universe is a 30-minute show taking the audience on a voyage through time and space. Using a combination of sights and sounds, it shows the Universe as revealed to us by science, from our Solar System out to the distant galaxies. The show was produced for the European Southern Observatory’s Supernova Planetarium and Visitor Centre and is now being shown at the Ulverstone Planetarium at Hive. The minimum age for attendance to this show is five years.

We are Guardians examines how the ecosystems of our world are intrinsically connected and how, with the help of satellites, we can examine the links between human activities and climate change. The minimum age for attendance to this show is five years.

The Sun: Our Living Star explains many of early ideas about our Sun and how modern science has enabled us to understand so much more today. Find out how energy is created in the Sun, and why the Sun will eventually make life on Earth impossible after a few billion years. The minimum age for attendance to this show is five years.

Capturing the Cosmos highlights work being carried out by Australian astronomers, especially all-sky astronomy by the SkyMapper telescope in New South Wales and the Murchison Wide-field Array in Western Australia, which have been designed to survey large sections of the sky. The minimum age for attendance to this show is five years.

Tycho Goes to Mars sees Tycho, our favourite space dog, blasting off for the Red Planet. Tycho will explore many of the amazing features of Mars, including the largest volcano in the Solar System! Tycho Goes to Mars was produced by the Melbourne Planetarium. This show is suitable for younger audiences, including under 5s. There is no minimum age limit for this show. All ages are welcome!

Each show will include a live talk on ‘what’s in the sky tonight?’, which will be fun for all the family.

Your Hive Planetarium show ticket will also give you general access to the Hive building including the Science Centre, Museum and Art Gallery.
