Planetarium and Digital Dome

The new Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome is the most advanced digital planetarium on the African continent. This multi-functional, world class facility brings digital technology to Cape Town - creating a space of innovation and discovery; where art, science and entertainment meet.

The Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome not only provides immersive multi-sensory edutainment and a platform for artistic production - it will also be used for cutting-edge scientific research and to optimise South Africa’s eResearch and data visualisation capacity.

In addition, learners and educators from primary to tertiary levels will benefit from computer generated imagery that makes interactive teaching and visual learning possible; providing an unparalleled and accelerated learning experience.

This digital full dome theatre provides audiences with an unequalled experience of animation and 360◦ cinema; as well as making virtual exploration of the universe, the inner workings of the human body, or the intricacies of an atomic structure possible.

Iziko Museums of South Africa gratefully values and acknowledge the significant and on-going support of our partners in this innovative project.
