This historic Plan­e­tar­ium was the first full-sized one in Africa and only the sec­ond in the South­ern Hemi­sphere at the time of its open­ing. While Cape Town’s plan­e­tar­ium just re­ceived dig­i­tal up­grades, this Zeiss pro­jec­tor first went into ser­vice on 12 Oc­to­ber 1960. En­trance fees are R50 for adults and R35 for kids.
