This progress has enabled us to better understand where we are in the universe and what kind of processes are playing out far away from us. Finally, visitors will be able to ask questions about space and space flight.

A popular science lecture by Zvonimir Drvar entitled ‘Getting to Know the Universe’ will be held at the Museum’s Planetarium on Friday, October 6, 2017, at 6 pm. The lecture is open to the public. The lecture will be about the most important discoveries that have helped us understand and learn more about the universe, stars and galaxies, and ways of determining the distance to them. As our knowledge of the universe expands and changes on a daily basis, so does the number of models and new ideas increase, which enable us to better understand the space and its inner workings.

The admission to all lectures is free, however, the number of places is limited. You can pick up the tickets at museum’s ticket office on the day of the lecture. All lectures are in Croatian.
