Southend Planetarium offers visitors a unique experience with changing talks throughout the year, exploring the night sky.

All our presentations are given live, giving you plenty of opportunities to question our knowledgeable lecturers. Each show can seat around 20 people.

Public shows run every Saturday and Sunday at 2pm, and Wednesday – Sunday at 2pm during school holidays.

The Planetarium is situated on the first floor within Central Museum. We regret that currently there is no disabled access to this floor.

​If you are looking to book on behalf of an education or community group, please contact us on for more information.
