150 Years in Mt. Lookout Celebration

Event Summary

Sep 30, 2023
6:00 pm

The Cincinnati Observatory is celebrating 150 years on Mt. Lookout!

Our original building in this location, named the Herget building in honor of longtime Observatory Director Dr. Paul Herget, was completed in 1873 and established our beautiful campus here. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have come through our buildings and domes to be inspired by the night sky through our outreach programming. This special event will celebrate our iconic Herget building and help raise money for the ongoing preservation and care as well as repairs for our facility and the telescopes housed within. We hope you can join us as we celebrate this milestone and our exciting plans for the future!


Heavy appetizers and drinks will be provided as well as architectural tours of our iconic building. The evening will wrap up with viewing through our historic telescope, weather permitting.


Members: $125, Non-members: $150 (21+, please)


Please join us for our biggest event of the year.
