About Central Museum & Planetarium

The understated Southend Planetarium at the Central Museum seats only 20 people but presents a range of talks about the entire universe, through various titles on astronomy and the night sky in general.

All their fascinating presentations are given live, so you've got plenty of opportunity for any questions you've got and a small enough audience that almost everyone dare ask!

They are generally suitable for ages 7 to adult, they try to keep it fairly accessible for young intellects but under 5s are not permitted. This is also because the show is 40 minutes long and largely in the dark, not a good mix for most toddlers!
