History of the Planetarium (Planetário) of Lisbon
The Marine Planetarium was built between 1963 and 1965, designed by the architect Frederico George. On July 20, 1965, it was inaugurated as part of the Navy Museum.
The installation of a modern astronomical projection device in a room with a semi-spherical dome, similar to many other infrastructures that began to be built in the main European capitals, satisfied one of the dominant aspirations of the Astronomical Society of Portugal, founded in 1917, and made the old dream of a Naval Officer and brilliant amateur astronomer, Commander Eugénio Conceição Silva.
In the construction of the Planetarium, whose work took place between September 1963 and July 1965. The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation donated 7 million Escudos (hence the name given to the Planetarium).
From May 2004 to April 2005, the Planetarium underwent an extensive recovery that involved a project of dynamization, expansion and renovation in partnership with Ciência Viva, which spent 3.5 million Euros for the purpose, thus becoming the main partner of the Planetarium . On July 19, 2005 the Planetarium reopened to the public with a new main projector and a renovated Auditorium. The current projector, with 32 star projectors, manages to present more than 9000 stars, as well as the Milky Way, stellar clusters and nebulae, the figures of the constellations and auxiliary didactic lines, starting to have means to make Astronomy and continue the dream of keeping astronomy in Portugal alive.
The Planetarium, in addition to the Planetarium Auditorium, also has a Gallery with several thematic exhibitions, an Observatory in recovery and a specific Library with more than 1000 titles. The building has accessibility for people with disabilities.
