  • For a small observatory this is a gem, the 30-40min presentation delivered great practical articulation of knowledge, the chance to hold a piece of meteorite and was thought provoking, view of the half moon and then an excellent view of Saturn was outstanding. For $10 each it was a fabulous investment - we left wowed!!
  • It is well worthwhile doing a tour of the Observatory at Rotary Park as it gives you a true appreciation of the size of this galaxy!
  • very nice old building
