The Beijing Planetariums are across from the Beijing Zoo and are composed of the old planetarium and new planetarium. The old planetarium has an optical projector and space exhibits. The new planetarium has SGI Digital Space theater, 4D theater, Space Simulator 3D theater, Sun exhibits, ancient Chinese astronomical instruments exhibits, telescope store, etc. All theaters are presented in Chinese. Some exhibits have a few words of English. The SGI Digital Space theater is the best quality computer generated show that I have seen. Some of the below thumbnails have multiple photos.
