The project for the National Maritime Museum, involves restoring and relandscaping some of the existing site. It also provides improved exhibition spaces and public facilities. The ‘cone’ designed by London based architects Allies& Morrison will be inclined at 51.5 degrees (the latitude of London) and point at the pole star. The planetarium will open fully in 2007.
