  • Where can buses park?

    For buses, there is a turning point at the end of the driveway to drop passengers off and pick them up again; during the visit itself, buses must park at a peripheral parking lot (Doornstraat or Diksmuidse Heirweg).


  • Can I pay with Bancontact?

    Cozmix has recently installed a payment terminal. It is therefore possible to pay by credit or debit card. For individual visitors, payment in cash or via the Payconiq / bank transfer application is encouraged. For groups, payment can be made by invoice (to be agreed when booking).

Fixed visiting times

  • Do I need to make reservations when I come to see a show?

    Joining on site without a reservation is possible, but we recommend making reservations in advance if you are coming to a fixed planetarium show. That way you can be sure of your seat. Just make sure you arrive on time to enjoy the show to its fullest.

    You can now also reserve a place for a desired visit using this link.

  • What does a visit entail?

    A visit at Cozmix takes approximately 1.5h. Each visit consists of a fulldome film in the planetarium (30 min). This film is followed by a live presentation where you discover tonight's starry sky (30 min). After the planetarium visit, a guide accompanies you to the observation tower where you can admire and look through the telescopes (30 min). Afterwards you can also visit the interactive exhibition on astronomy (free of charge).

    A visit at Cozmix can also be combined with a visit to the nature centre, which is located in the same building. At the nature center you get to know everything nature has to offer in an active and educational way! Thanks to interactive sensory stations and a computer quiz, you can experience nature in an unprecedented way!

    Yes, groups are always welcome! Also in the evening and on weekends. The Cozmix visitor center always provides a guide who will accompany you.
