We do not have a bank or credit card reader yet. Therefore all our products must be paid in cash for the time being. When needed cash may be withdrawn with Finnish (and perhaps European) debit cards in Hostel Tuorla. We apologise for any problems arising of this. Groups are billed after the visit, but they may also pay in cash.
We do not have group rates during our regular opening hours. We recommend groups to reserve a separate time for a presentation that can be tailored to their specific needs and wishes. We shall make an offer for these separate presentations, influenced by the size of the group, time of reserved presentation, and programme to be presented.
We offer a specially tailored school package to school classes. Price of the package is 80 EUR per school class. The planetarium package may be supplemented with a tour to the observatory bringing total price to 110 EUR per class.

Terms for reservations
We aim at maximal flexibility in our operation and try to accommodate needs of our customers. Because there are, nonetheless, always momentary irregularities in all human activities, it is worthwhile to state the terms for mutual benefit. All reservations are processed in the order they arrive as soon as possible. Once we have confirmed the reservation it will be binding. The customer may cancel the reservation (and hence the invoice) by informing us of the cancellation at least 24 hours before the reserved time. Cancellations made after this time limit will result in a processing fee of 50 EUR. A reservation that has not been cancelled will be charged for in full. Should the customer arrive late to a reserved presentation, we shall attempt to accommodate the schedule accordingly. This may, however, be impossible during busy seasons. Should the delay or cancellation of a presentation be due to planetarium staff or equipment, the customer is primarily compensated with a presentation at an alternative time, a substitutive programme at the reserved time, or cancelling the invoice of the reserved programme. Naturally we wish everything goes without any irregularities and there should never be need to enact these terms.
