Celebrating a Century of Visual Wonders.

Centennial of the Planetarium Logo

The stars were just the beginning!

Celebrate the Centennial of the Planetarium with us from 2023 to 2025!

Since the beginning of time, man has been fascinated by the starry sky and the secrets of the universe. The sky was brought down to earth in October 1923 when the first planetarium projector was unveiled in Jena, Germany. The first planetarium opened to the public on May 7, 1925, when the Deutsches Museum opened in Munich. Today, planetariums reveal the secrets of the universe – they are a gateway to space; they inform and inspire by creating audiovisual worlds of experience. Since 1923, planetariums have evolved. The entire universe can now be represented realistically, allowing everyone to experience distant worlds and the wonders of the cosmos as if they themselves had their very own spacecraft. In addition to vivid representations of scientific content, live concerts, laser shows and other cultural events fascinate visitors. Every visit to a planetarium stimulates the imagination like no other venue can.

Registration for the opening event!

On October 21, 2023, we plan to kick off the anniversary activities with a joint, parallel celebration at the Planetarium Jena and the Deutsches Museum in Munich. Both venues will be connected live throughout the event, and the event will be presented in a joint moderation dialog between the two locations.

All members of our community, including all municipal, private and other sponsors, members of industry, friends of the planetarium and supporters are invited to participate in the event.  We ask that you register via the link


Participation is possible in Jena as well as in Munich. Due to the limited number of seats, early registration is recommended.
