Every Thursday, rain or shine, join us for “Evenings at the Dudley Observatory”. There will be fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory at miSci will operate our 14-inch telescope inside the roll-top roof observatory, allowing visitors to see stars, planets, galaxies, and more each night! In the event of poor weather, we will have hands-on activities indoors instead. The observatory will be open from 6:30-8pm through March 7, 2019. miSci galleries will be open continuously from 9am until the observatory closes. Access to the observatory or activities is free with museum admission. We know it's been cloudy most Thursday nights, so we've come up with some new incentives for you to come to miSci, even when it's overcast! Starting this week, we will have special events on Thursday nights, including lectures by our Astronomer Dr. Valerie Rapson (free) and planetarium shows ($6 extra).
