West Vancouver:


HR MacMillan Space Centre

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, known to many as the Planetarium, is one of Vancouver’s iconic institutions. Just a 15 minute walk from downtown Vancouver, the Space Centre, which opened its doors in 1968, is located in Kitsilano’s Vanier Park. The facility was as a gift from lumber magnate and philanthropist H.R. MacMillan to the citizens of Vancouver. With the advent of space exploration during the 1960s, H.R. MacMillan wanted to provide a resource for his day and future generations. Fast forward to the 21st century and the HR MacMillan Space Centre has become an organization visited by over 122,000 people a year, who are attracted by a myriad of public lectures and events, school and public programs and cultural activities that raise public awareness of science literacy.

During Spring Break the HR MacMillan Space Centre invites everyone to learn about the sun and the moon. Visitors will enjoy family-friendly activities as well as the new film: The Sun – Our Living Star, premiering in the planetarium star theatre on March 16th.
