Fans of space can revisit their fav place next week when the downtown planetarium reopens.

As restriction measures are relaxed, the Bangkok Planetarium on Sukhumvit Road will reopen Oct. 15 with limited capacity after months of closure due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The 360-degree dome will welcome stargazers again with October’s show dubbed Two Smalls Pieces of Glass. When November comes, the Science Film Festival will take place with a show exploring the concept of asteroid mining.

The venue will only accept 140 people per show – or 50% of capacity. Admission is THB30 for adults and THB20 for children for shows in Thai. English sessions are at 10am on Tuesdays for THB50 (adults) and THB30 (children). More details are available online.

The planetarium is closed Mondays. It’s located at the Science Center for Education next to the Easstern Bus Terminal and is easily reached by foot from BTS Ekkamai exit No. 2.
