It is challenging to run a planetarium within a larger institution like a museum. You have a demanding daily show schedule, paid ticket holders expecting value, and never enough time or resources to train your staff or take care of your equipment. Through all of this you still want to educate, entertain and wow your audiences so they come back for more.
We have dozens of planetarium systems in museums around the world, and we have designed our products to meet your challenges.
