  • You want to come early (1/2 hour) for parking and to get in line. We had a crowd of over a 100 and we were all able to see through all the telescopes. The volunteers who set up the telescopes were fri...  read more »
  • Fun and educational would of given them give five stars but being in a wheelchair i was not able to look in all the telescopes still very interesting and enjoyable. Thanks 
  • We went to the evening viewing. All the volunteers & staff were friendly, helpful & knowledgeable. Plan on staying late as there are different activities at different times. 
  • Went one night for a telescope party and it was the best observatory experience I've ever had. They had many telescopes set up with people at each one to make sure it was focused and lined up properly. They told you all the details of what each was looking at and then adjusted what you could see in all of them as the night went on.
  • The Oregon Observatory is fantastic. There are plenty of telescopes available, so you won't have to wait to be amazed. And the staff there is so nice, helpful, and very knowledgeable. They went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate my 4 year old daughter, and she absolutely loved it! We can't wait to go back!
  • I know; I know: 98% of the reviews are stellar (haha), but I think it's a waste of a perfectly serviceable Wednesday evening. Yes; the staff are friendly, but instead of it being free (which it isn't), it should be good (which it wasn't). I don't know how many observatories other attendees have frequented, but my guess is: not many. We were stunned by how disappointing it was! :(
  • Huge telescopes. Great presentation and the folks really know what they're talking about. Very impressed and would definately go there again.
  • Great group of people. Very knowledgeable and lots of telescopes to look through.
