Le village des Étoiles (Astronomy / Planetarium)

Located in the heart of Valromey, the Village des Étoiles is designed to introduce astronomy to as many people as possible.

Whatever your age or level of knowledge, simply come with your curiosity and the desire to know more about the mysteries of our Universe!

The animations are accessible to all, young or old, for an evening of discovery, a birthday, an introductory or advanced course, training courses for children/adults, etc...

You will also appreciate the celestial stroll with the naked eye comfortably seated in our planetarium... under the open sky.

The Village des Étoiles has a magnificent fixed planetarium with a capacity of 30 seats. Equipped with a 360° digital projector, it allows you to discover the starry sky in real time. The session also includes the projection of a 360° film.
Selection of films:
- Polaris , the space submarine and the mystery of the polar night. From 6 years old.
- Lucia, the secret of shooting stars. From 6 years old.
- Cosmix , the space adventure. For the youngest, from 3 years old.
- Water, a cosmic adventure. From 8 years old.
- Astronomy in a big way. From 8 years old.

We also travel with our inflatable dome (to be installed indoors in a large room), our Cosmic'Mobile and our telescopes in the Rhône Alpes and beyond!

The Village des Étoiles is also labelled "Astronomy School" by the French Astronomy Association (AFA). The only school of this type in the Ain department.
