Having visited a number planetariums in my research for Top 100 Attractions I have visited sites such as Jodrell Bank in Cheshire, the Spaceguard Centre in Mid Wales to the famous Cape Canaveral in Florida. But believe it or not, the one I was so impressed by was the planetarium here in Armagh. I'm sure it would come as a huge surprise to a number of tourism experts that a small planetarium in Northern Ireland has made that much of an impression on me that not only did we vote it a Top 100 Attraction but also it ends up being the best planetarium I have ever visited. One of the many keys too a Top 100 Attraction is its staff, and the staff here are top class! The management really do operate a slick operation at the Armagh Planetarium and I promise you will not be disappointed with your visit.
