Description

The Observatory offers great views of the city as well as the sky from the platform and through the telescopes. Primarily a research center for astronomers, the Observatory's exhibitions include astronomy activities for everyone. Hold a meteorite, see revolving Victorian telescope domes, explore the properties of light with hands-on exhibits, and use the telescopes to explore the night sky or check the sun for spots. The Observatory is informative and accessible regardless of your prior knowledge of the constellations. As the universe is stretched out before you, the intricacies of stars, supernovas and black holes are illuminated. Check website for more information including prices.
