Experience Investment – how to reach for the stars: An Iziko Museum Planetarium Case Study

Iziko Museums of South Africa (Iziko) has entered the next era of technological advancement. The Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome is the most advanced digital planetarium on the African continent, a multi-functional space of innovation and discovery where art, science, and entertainment meet. The recent upgrade of the Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome was made possible through significant fundraising and investment. Its evolution, from analogue to full digital technology, has brought the most advanced data visualisation technology to Cape Town. The case study will present and discuss the process, people, practices, and paradigms required to initiate, launch, lift-off, and culminate the project.
