Hemisferium Astrolabes

Hemisferium is an artisan shop based in Madrid, Spain specializing preserving objects that link us to our scientific past, and in making them accessible to all those who love the art and beauty of science. Every handmade astrolabe is fully functional. Each one tells a different story of the past.  There was a time when most learned children knew how to make and operate Astrolabes in order to chart their course via the stars as well as tell the date and time.  They were the Smartphones and GPS's systems of days gone by. 

The goals of Hemisferium are: investigation, development, and recovery of the scientific-historic patrimony of instruments that, due to their importance in the advancement of knowledge and in the evolution of technology, deserve to be rescued from oblivion and shared in all their beauty. They surpass their goals at every step
