Malacca Planetarium Adventure Science Center

Malacca Planetarium Adventure Science Center, which is know as Melaka Planetarium, is a learning center dedicated to the exciting world of astronomy and science. Opened in 2009, the planetarium is right beside the Melaka International Trade Center (MITC), approximately 20 minutes from the Ayer Keroh toll plaza. The three-storey, Islamic-inspired complex houses multiple exhibition areas together with a cafeteria, a library and also Malaysia’s largest dome theater for periodical movie screenings.
Aimed to spread awareness and cultivate an interest in space science among children the Malacca Planetarium offers an insight of the amazing Milky Way, with attractions such as the solar system alley (depicting information about the sun and surrounding planets), and cosmic alley (light boxes with information on deep space objects like black holes and galaxies). For those who would like a hands-on experience, the planetarium also has space flight simulators for those astronaut-wannabes, and replicas of both the Malaysian satellite and the Hubble space telescope for those who would like a closer inspection of this coveted exploration equipment.
