The Science Centre houses Norway’s Largest planetarium, showing 360 degree movies and shows over the entire dome. Our Northern Light movie is beautiful and exotic. The show gives a vivid, celestial view and a solid understanding of the scientific phenomenon with breathtaking footage form the Tromsø region. Other fascinating shows represent life and the universe, including Origin of Life, Our Living Climate, We are Astronomers, Stars, Polaris and Back to the Moon. See our web page for screening schedule.
In our exhibition everyone can have fun with popular science, exploring both regional phenomena and universal questions on close to a 100 interactive exhibits. The topics of the centre reflect important research areas of the north: The sky above, Climate and weather, Energy and environment and Body and brain. During summertime you will find exciting challenges on our roof terrace. By appealing to our senses and hands-on exhibit, the Science Centre brings out the curiosity and the engagement for science.
A conference breakout session - to either help break the ice, energies and refresh delegates or just to improve interaction between colleagues - are getting a slightly different angle at the Science Centre. What about a trip into space, past the galaxies to the origin of life and safely back, or rather a task solving team challenge in our exhibition, a science show with WOW or a lecture on Sámi and Viking constellations? Have your own unique tailor made breakout session at the northernmost Science Centre in the world.
