4th Sunday History Tours
Stories From Our History
Sunday October 24, Noon and 1:30pm
This special program offers those seeking to learn more about the Observatory’s history a more detailed, in-depth guided tour at Noon or 1:30pm. These include all that’s covered in a Daytime Tour - as well as more stories of how the Observatory came to be (and almost didn’t!). These tours also cover the Observatory’s role in weather forecasting and timekeeping as well as a visit to our interactive Sundial, original 1843 cornerstone, and more! Tours last about 60 minutes with plenty of time for questions and some behind-the-scenes fun! Perfect for local history, astronomy and science buffs ages 12 and up.
Tickets are $5 per person. Free for members!
Space is limited to 15 visitors per tour, and we will follow COVID-19 safety procedures for the safety of our guests, staff and volunteers. Advanced reservations are required.
