Pink Floyd’s iconic album ‘The Dark Side of The Moon’, originally released in March 1973, turned 50 last year, and what more fitting a place to celebrate it and experience it than in a planetarium, through the music set to visuals. With the help of modern technology, the idea of a show combining breath-taking views of the solar system and beyond, played out to 42 minutes of The Dark Side of The Moon in surround sound, has been embraced by the band. NSC Creative have led the visual production efforts, working closely with Pink Floyd’s long-time creative collaborator Aubrey Powell from Hipgnosis.

Each song has a different theme; some futuristically looking forward and some a retro acknowledgment to Pink Floyd’s visual history, all relating to a time and space experience, embracing up to the minute technology that only a Planetarium can offer. A truly immersive and all-encompassing sound and visual treat that will transcend reality and take you way beyond the realms of 2D experience.

For music lovers looking for a more hands-on concert experience, come early and you’ll get the chance to explore the universe with an adult twist! Show attendees can enjoy beverages at a pop-up bar opening an hour before showtime in the Museum’s Science Gallery and relive the explorations of their youth with hands-on science fun!


Entrance for this event is through the Rupert Street doors. This main Museum entrance includes both a ramp and stairs. The Planetarium and Science Gallery level can be accessed using an elevator in the Museum lobby.
