Tour Weston Observatory

Weston Observatory welcomes groups of up to 15 people to come tour the facilities. We prefer at least one week's notice for tours. Tours take 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the amount of discussion and questions asked.

As an alternative to a staff-guided tour, you may take a self-guided tour. As you enter the foyer, the multi-page self-guided tour brochure is on the right-hand pamphlet rack. Please check in at the reception desk before you guide yourself around the Observatory.

We have Weston Observatory books, T-shirts, and mugs for sale. If interested, please bring a check or cash with you to the tour.
