The Nehru Planetarium has been playing a seminal role in disseminating knowledge about space and promoting education in astronomy. Plans to upgrade the existing Planetarium to bring its equipment and infrastructure at par with other planetariums in the world are ongoing. The strength of the Planetarium lies in its live interactions and programmes, which have been constantly improvised and innovated, over the years, for visitors, students and amateur astronomers. Programmes for school and college students and amateur astronomers along with workshops and observing activities are organized throughout the year. Astronomy quiz and art competitions are held in the months of February and August.
