Halifax Planetarium

The Halifax Planetarium has a long history, dating from its establishment in 1954 at the old Nova Scotia Museum of Science on Spring Garden Road and at the time was the first public planetarium in Canada. The Halifax Planetarium is now located in Dalhousie University's Sir James Dunn Physics Building. See map.

After some years of limited accessibility, in 2009 a small group of volunteers has started occasional public shows. A small number of school shows are provided by the NS Museum of Natural History. Contact Amy Coleman at 902-424-6512 for information.
