The Planetarium in Baia Mare offers ENGLISH educational projection

Saturday 21st of May, 2016, the Planetarium in BAIA MARE offers English educational projections and programs to those who visit the venue, as part of the Night of Museums event.

Before the midnight, at 23:00h, inside the Planetarium theatre, the organizers will deliver an English presentation of the visible sky of the night, using a state-of-the-art projector.


Right after that, outside, we are all invited to look at the stars through optical instruments (such as telescopes).

Throughout the evening, Complexul Astronomic Baia Mare hopes to be visited by a numerous audience, as they have prepared a number of activities, all related to the infinite universe that encloses us.

You’ll find the Planetarium of Complexul Astronomic Baia Mare here:
16 George Coșbuc, Baia Mare



For the first time in Romania, visually impaired people have the opportunity to visit an astronomy exhibition that has been adapted for them. Within the inspiring project called “Cerul in mainile tale” (The sky in your hands), the visitors can learn more about Romanian constellations through a multi-sensorial exhibition. Anyone who wants to experience the exhibition in the darkness can do so blindfolded.


The Long Night of Museums (or the Night of Museums) is a cultural event in which museums and cultural institutions in an area cooperate to remain open late into the night to introduce themselves to new potential patrons. Visitors are given a common entrance pass which grants them access to all exhibits as well as complimentary public transportation within the area.

The first Long Night of Museums took place in Berlin in 1997. The concept has been very well received, and since then the number of participating institutions and exhibitions has risen dramatically, spreading to over 120 other cities throughout Europe.
