Northern Lights Planetarium
The Northern Lights Planetarium was the first planetarium in Norway open to the public, and is now the planetarium at Nordnorsk vitensenter - the Science Centre of Northern Norway. We have daily all-dome shows about and with northern lights, and can also show constellations and journeys through the solar system and the distant galaxies.


Our team is actively working to keep a safe environment so you and your loved ones can have an educational and enjoyable experience. We focus on the health and safety guidelines established by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and our measures are approved by the local health service.
