There are many activities to explore: observe the night sky through telescopes outside and on the rooftop deck, view a 3D poster gallery of images from Mars, learn how different telescopes work, take a walking guided tour of the solar system, interact with our gravity-well simulator and other physics demonstrations, view microscopic meteorites and rockets built by students, and more! There is no fixed program for observations and no reservations are necessary.
