The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is a non-profit community resource that provides a unique learning experience for all. Visitors can learn about space and the night sky through planetarium star theatre shows, live demonstrations, and an interactive exhibit gallery. Next to the Space Centre is the Gordon MacMillan Southam Observatory.
The H.R. MacMillan Planetarium opened its doors on October 28, 1968, a gift from lumber magnate H.R. MacMillan to the citizens of Vancouver.
