Armagh Planetarium is a planetarium located in Armagh, Northern Ireland
close to the city centre and neighbouring Armagh Observatory in approximately fourteen acres of landscaped grounds known as the Armagh Astropark. Armagh Planetarium was established by the seventh director of Armagh Observatory, Dr. Eric Mervyn Lindsay, who, after twenty five years of effort, secured funding from local councils and the Ministry of Commerce of Northern Ireland
in 1965. In the same year Patrick Moore was appointed as Director of the Planetarium to oversee its construction.
