CLARK TELESCOPE CLOSED
The Clark Telescope is closed for renovations from January 1, 2013 through mid-2015. Daytime Mars Tours will still generally go inside of the dome. In the evening, we will use the recently renovated 16-inch McAllister Telescope as our primary telescope for public viewing.
Each year, several thousand K-12 students come to Lowell for science demonstrations, telescope viewing, and tours.
We offer private and group programs throughout the year for schools and groups that range from one to sixty participants. Choose from a number of multimedia presentations at a variety of levels, building tours, and viewing. All programs are presented by one of our educators.
- A private, 1-hour daytime program is $150 and includes two multimedia presentations and/or historic tours.
- A private, 90-minute evening program is $300 and includes one multimedia presentation and exclusive access to the telescopes for viewing (weather permitting). Note: Nighttime private programs are not available from June through August since we are open every night during those months.
- Facility Rental: To request information about private group facility rental, please contact Mary DeMuth at the email address or telephone number listed below. Facility rental is based on availability, individual requests, and the impact that private use will have on public activities. Fees are calculated on a case-by-case basis depending on group size and facilities/activities requested.
All private programs also include access to our Visitor Center’s exhibit hall.
