Gaze at the star‐studded sky in the world's largest planetarium dome

Theme on "watch, touch and discover", this museum exhibits space, the earth, and cutting-edge science. Among the exhibitions, the projection of starry sky on the world's largest planetarium dome with the internal diameter of 35m is overwhelmingly incredible. You can have fun learning about life and science through experiments and interactive activities such as experiencing a 9m high tornado at the tornado laboratory, observing the electric sparks of the Tesla coil at the discharge laboratory, and experiencing −30℃ temperature at the freezing laboratory.
