The Beijing Planetarium (simplified Chinese: 北京天文馆; traditional Chinese: 北京天文館) is an astronomy museum in Beijing, China.[1]

The Planetarium comprises two main buildings, Building A & B. Building A, which was built in 1957, contains the Celestial Theater, an Eastern Exhibition Hall and a Western Exhibition Hall. It was the first large-scale planetarium in China, and at one time the only planetarium in Asia.[1] Building B contains a digital space theater, 3D and 4D theaters, several exhibition halls and two observatories.[1]
