PROGRAMMING ALERT: The Clark Telescope is closed for renovation through mid-2015. Daytime Mars Tours will still go inside the dome when possible. In the evening, we will use the recently renovated 16-inch McAllister Telescope as our primary telescope for public viewing.
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. Programs must be booked at least 3 weeks in advance.
- 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. From March-May and September-October, private nighttime programs are available on Sundays only.
All private programs also include access to the Steele Visitor Center’s exhibit hall.
