Visit Lowell Observatory
For more than 125 years, Lowell Observatory has connected people to the universe, through education, exploration and discovery. Located just less than an hour away from Sedona by car, this historical observatory will make the perfect addition to your trip!
General Admission gives you all-day access to 127 years of astronomical discovery at Lowell Observatory. Walk in the steps of Clyde Tombaugh, who discovered Pluto at Lowell in 1930, and marvel at the 125-year-old, 24-inch Clark Refractor, which is still in operation today. At night, discover planets, distant gas clouds, and far-off galaxies through the six state-of-the-art telescopes of the Giovale Open Deck Observatory under the famously dark skies of Flagstaff. General Admission also includes access to numerous talks and tours throughout the day.
