All of our facilities are closed now through April 30.


The George Observatory main campus is closed until further notice for renovations. Fear not stargazers, we will still be setting up at the Nature Center every Saturday from Sunset – 10 PM (weather permitting). 

Gaze at the stars and enjoy the George Observatory’s latest renovations during our select spring break sneak peek hours. March 9, 13, 14 and 21 | 5 – 10 p.m.

Due to weather, the March 13 & 14 sneak peek hours are canceled.

Be sure to purchase your tickets in advance! Tickets at the George Observatory sell out quickly.
