The planetarium is due for an upgrade in late summer 2022. The core of the conversion and extension is the replacement of the projection system with modern laser projectors. You can expect an even more impressive experience with sharper projections and stronger contrasts.
The last renovation of the planetarium was eight years ago. The digital technology installed at that time allows you to interactively explore the universe and the Earth with all its facets. The Swiss Museum of Transport Planetarium specialises in real-time visualisations of scientific data and presentations of live shows that are unique in the world. It is one of the most innovative facilities of its kind in the world.
The Planetarium success story now continues. In addition to the installation of the new laser projectors, the audio system will be replaced by a 3D audio system that is unique in Switzerland, optimisations will be made to the concert stage in the middle of the hall and new lighting will be installed. This allows a wider range of real films and live streams to be shown on the dome and unique cultural experiences, such as concerts or 3D radio plays, to be staged. The update of the operating software and the increased computing power form the basis for significantly expanded outreach and education work.
