  • We had a wonderful experience. They had 13 telescopes out and the operators were very knowledgeable and also friendly. They had a shuttle to take us up hill, and was well organized. Check their calendar for future events.
  • Excellent place to get enlightened on all things celestial. Great for all ages. Just make sure to go when there are guides to give you a little tour
  • The night sky festival was great! We took the shuttle bus from the Visitor Center; the staff was friendly and helpful. Everyone who brought a telescope was enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge of the stars.
  • Such enthusiastic volunteers! Wish we had been able to stay for the star party.
  • Happened to be in the area during the Persied meteor show and went to the star party. Wow! The 16" telescope is amazing. I highly recommend a nighttime visit!
