Next, you will get ushered in to Theatre Sora where the second presentation takes place. Theatre Sora is a round, standing-only theatre, 11 metres in diameter. Visitors look down at the floor screen from an elevated platform.

Theatre Sora provides an amazing sensation, as if peering through a portal into space, and is a refreshing change from the usual omni-theatre-type experiences offered at other science museums.

These first two presentations are followed by two rooms for visitors to explore on their own. These cover various aspects of space.
