Since 2005 Hemisferium. Instrumentos Científicos Antiguos, S.L. specializes in manufacturing objects that link us with our scientific past, and in making them accessible to all those passionate about science beauty.

Hemisferium has an accumulated experience of more than twenty years of creating reproductions of instruments for nautical or optical use or for astronomical calculations.

Our mission is keeping our scientific heritage alive, crafting instruments that were fundamentally important to the advancement of science and technology throughout History, who deserve to be rescued from oblivion and shared in all their beauty.

Carefully, and aided by experts, we recreate instruments, remaining as true as possible to the aesthetic and functional properties of the original pieces. We combine modern materials and techniques with traditional craftsmanship so they can be enjoyed and used in accordance to their original objective.
