  • Very interesting tour, excellent orrery and telescope is cool. Very informative tour guide.
  • Amazing building constructed for this specific purpose of supporting 4 tons of telescope. Closes this month for 2 year refurbishment so great opportunity to see it again. Knowledgeable and helpful staff on hand to explain purpose and working
