Orreries & Planetaria Gifts

The orreries and solar system models we sell are tested by us for scientific authenticity and accuracy. We stock models suitable for the collector who wants to showcase a beautiful Ferguson's Orerry and other more affordable models which can be used to teach and observe the movement of planets in our solar system. Orerries make great reference pieces for illustrating the inter-relationship of planets and moons in our solar system as they are very visual. The positions of celestial objects such as planets can be determined with a high degree of accuracy using equipment such as our Planetica planet locator.
