"Educated Star Gazing"

Inaugurated by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1963, the M.P. Birla Planetarium holds the distinction of being the first of its kind in India. At the intersection of Shakespeare Sarani and Chowringhee, the white domed structure stands out in the midst of the daily traffic of people and vehicles. In accordance with its aim to educate, the planetarium offers a number of interesting ways to discover the varied facets of astronomy and related sciences. Student programs and a Post Graduate Diploma course in Astronomy & Planetarium Sciences is offered. However, if you just want to get the bare basics, you can take advantage of the free evening course in astronomy. Regular shows are conducted in Bengali, Hindi and English. The auditorium uses state-of-the-art equipment and can hold up to 688 people. If you need to get a closer look at the Kolkata sky, this is the place to do it!
