School Bookings

As part of your visit to the Inishowen Maritime Museum & Planetarium, students will be given a guided tour of our Maritime Museum; each student will be given a quiz sheet to complete as they are shown and informed about various maritime heritage themes, from the traditions of our fishing communities to how we were part of WWI & WWII.

 

After their tour, students will take a comfortable seat in our new planetarium, where they will see a presentation chosen by their teacher, based on the topic they would like to explore further.

fulldome_white

Our new full dome theatre gives students an opportunity to view and learn from a variety of shows, all of which are projected onto a 360º dome, providing a feeling of full sensory immersion unlike any standard classic planetarium or cinema. Teachers/classes do not even have to be interested in astronomy to learn and enjoy the

experience; whether it’s deep sea or deep space, we have a choice of presentations for all ages and interests.
