Come along and enjoy something different! A chance to peek inside Armagh's fabulous Observatory.

Fancy something a little different? Have you ever wanted to peek inside the Armagh Observatory Building and learn more about the history and heritage of this wonderful building? If the answer is yes, then come along on Tuesday 29th October!

Begin with a Dome Theatre Show starting at 13:00 then enjoy an inspiring tour of our Observatory. Highlights include a behind the scenes access to the historic Armagh telescopes, including the 1795 Troughton and 1885 Grubb equatorial telescopes, as well as learning about the current science conducted at the Observatory.

Only a small number of tickets are available for this unique event, so book early!

Please Note: While we make every effort to accommodate wheel chair users and others with mobility issues, by virtue of the nature of the building, the telescopes are accessed by steep narrow stairs. The tour includes access to our grounds outside so we recommend suitable footwear. This tour would be suitable for those aged 8 and over.
The event will last approximately 2 hours.
Meeting point is at Reception, Armagh Planetarium.
