Join us for a live Matariki kōrero under the planetarium stars.

You’ll hear about ngā whetū (the stars), ngā aorangi (the planets), and the many stories written in our night skies passed down from generation to generation.

Sit back, relax in our reclined planetarium seats and take a whānau-friendly journey with our presenters as they share their astronomy mātauranga. Experience a collection of animated stories, learn about Maramataka (Māori lunar calendar) and discover the rich traditions of Matariki from a Māori perspective.

Ngā whetū O Matariki is perfect for families who are looking to celebrate the Māori New Year in an authentic and meaningful way and admire the beauty of our night sky.

Bookings essential.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your show. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.
