Museon-Omniversum is all about the earth, people and a sustainable future!
In 2022, popular science museum Museon and big-screen film theater Omniversum merged. One Planet is the name of the programming and reflects the mission: to inspire new generations to commit to a livable earth for all.
Museon-Omniversum is a fun and educational day out for young and old. You can watch a spectacular big-screen movie on a screen the size of half a soccer field that curves around you. Moreover you can visit the interactive exhibits, themed rooms, labs and activities. You'll learn about the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and discover smart solutions for a sustainable future. Take a quick look at the daily agenda to see what's on the day of your visit.
The spectacular large screen films in Museon-Omniversum:
- The Arctic, our last great wilderness
Imagine a vast, wild and magical area in the far north of Alaska - a place twice the size of the Netherlands. One of the greatest natural spectacles in the world takes place there: the migration of 200,000 caribou that cover more than 1,000 kilometers twice a year. Join National Geographic photographer Florian Schulz on his expedition into the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Africa's most iconic animals are home to the Serengeti. It is the place where one of the greatest natural spectacles in the world takes place: the migration of millions of wildebeest. Join us on an unforgettable safari tour with elephants, lions, leopards, birds and insects, be part of the trek that millions of wildebeest make every year and discover the relationship between all life on the Serengeti.
- Turtle Adventure
The movie Turtle Adventure gives you a unique insight into the life of the Australian green sea turtle Bunji and her incredible journey through the great ocean. In the film you follow Bunji from the moment she hatches on the golden Australian beach and swims thousands of kilometers through the open ocean. There she meets wonderful creatures and faces many dangers.
- Dinosaurs of the South Pole
About 250 million years ago, Antarctica looked very different from today. At that time, the South Pole was covered with forests and swamps; in winter it was dark for no less than six months. How did this green, prehistoric world become a frozen desert and the coldest and windiest place on earth? What lies hidden beneath the glaciers of the South Pole? Three scientists are going to investigate the radical changes of this ice continent.
For billions of years, volcanoes have shaped our world into the shape we know today, with extraordinary ecosystems and unique animals. There are over 500 active volcanoes worldwide, and many more inactive ones, all helping to create ecosystems and shape the Earth. Experience it from the edge of your seat!
- Secrets of the sea
Ready for an underwater exploration? Meet the ocean's strangest and most spectacular creatures you've never seen before. From adorable pygmy seahorses and smart squid to manta rays, tiger sharks and a coconut octopus. We can learn a lot from the fascinating way in which they interact with each other.
- Recombination, the Fulldome journey
The most recent project by visionary fractal artist Julius Horsthuis is an immersive, abstract journey through space, time, music and mathematics.
- The Great Underwater Adventure of Barney and Beeney
A fun, educational and entertaining fulldome show for children is dedicated to protecting the seas and oceans. Many adventures await them in the lagoon, including a nighttime visit to the constellations in the sky and rescuing little turtle Abbey, who is caught in a net.
- America's Music
In the big-screen film America's Music, singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc, known for his hits Hello World and Wake me up, follows in the footsteps of Louis Armstrong on a musical road trip through American cities.
