A Day at the Esplora Interactive Science Centre

At Clubclass our students enjoy a full-programme of leisure activities, one of them being the Esplora Interactive Science Centre. Esplora Interactive Science Centre is located in Kalkara and is Malta’s latest visitor attraction which was officially opened on 26th October 2016.

Esplora seeks to cultivate a culture of scientific curiosity and imagination by igniting a passion for questioning, investigation where visitors are encouraged to explore, think and imagine.
Housed in Villa Bighi, the renovated building consists of several buildings and outdoor spaces, all interconnected following an extensive restoration and development process. The main exhibitions halls and the landscaped gardens consist of over 200 exhibits making this science centre fun. Moreover, there is an exciting activity centre for visitors to experience hands-on workshops and entertaining science shows, making science relevant to our everyday lives.

The Planetarium is one of the biggest attractions found at Esplora and has a stunning 10.7 meter in diameter structure with a complete colour space 4K theatre system. The system allows the planetarium to show both the best full-dome shows and live presenter-led visualizations of astronomy and other sciences. An exhibition about the Universe with focus on the Cosmos and Life in Space can be found within the Planetarium building. The Esplora Planetarium is suspended inside the shell of the old Auxiliary hospital building on the Grand Harbour. The Esplora Planetarium has become a signature attraction in Malta.
