A new universe

You will never get closer to the stars than this!

The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium invites you to experience the Universe like never before! Going beyond scientific knowledge, it draws on creativity and the most up-to-date technology in a fascinating encounter of science and emotion.

Opening new possibilities

Inside, two theatres of immersion offer an unconventional setting for a planetarium. Two different complementary experiences are offered: one in a poetic vain, and the other, with a scientific outlook on our Universe. This shows the Space for Life's desire to introduce a new vision of astronomy, by offering a permanent creative space in its new planetarium.

Masters of a new vision

The creative Montreal tandem of Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon were charged with the artistic direction of the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium. On the strength of their knowledge of new technology and their experience designing bold new shows, these multidisciplinary artists have presented a truly original vision, in which art and science are closely connected. On their impulse, the Chaos and Milky Way theatres propel visitors into a new universe.

A breathtaking meeting of technology, art and science!
