Directions to the Planetarium:

The PLANETARIUM SCIENCE CENTRE is on OSU AVENUE EXTENSION.  That is the road behind Police HQ, and also behind Christ the King.

From Christ the King church/school, take the first turn on your right after passing Christ the King on your right.  You should see signs for Quality Distance Learning (QDL) and the Ghana Planetarium. Take the first right turn, again there are signs for QDL and the Planetarium.  This right turn is directly opposite the Korean Embassy. The road bends round to the left and the Planetarium is on your left, in the same compound as Quality Distance Learning and Office Automation Systems.  

From Danquah circle, head towards Kwame Nkrumah Circle on the Ring Road until you get to Police HQ.  Take the slip road that is next to Police HQ (leading up to Ako Adjei Interchange), and take the right turn that is halfway up (ie you don’t go all the way up to the mini roundabout).  This road is Osu Avenue Extension.  Pass Rockstone’s Office, then you will find the Planetarium in the same compound as Quality Distance Learning and Office Automation Systems.  There is a large sign on the wall.

Just look for the giraffes!
