- Project positioning
- Overall positioning
To create an astronomical science popularization platform with the mission of improving the public's scientific literacy, focusing on visiting the frontiers of cosmic science, realizing a shocking display experience, and building a unique astronomical education, and constructed with the concept of modern display education.
At the same time, the Shanghai Planetarium aims to become a professional museum with distinctive characteristics of the times, rich astronomical knowledge, strong scientific communication capabilities, and widely loved by the public.
