Telescope Nights

Astronomy Enthusiasts!

Come observe the Universe
with like minded astronomers
of all ages! FREE!


Our WINTER TELESCOPE VIEWING SCHEDULE varies due to the inclement weather. Our telescope guides make plans to setup on very short notice this time of year. So it is best to check our Facebook and Twitter pages for any announcements about viewing between October - April. When they do set up, viewing times are from about 7p - 10pm. Telescopes will be set up in the plaza outside the museum. Dress appropriately, it can get cold.
