Fodor's Review

In the Planetarium lie back and watch an almost limitless range of virtual space journeys. On clear nights view the heavens through the observatory telescope. Don't miss the state-of-the-art displays and a remarkable collection of artifacts including the oldest working telescope of its kind in the country. The observatory is only a 2 minute walk from the top of the Kelburn Cable Car, but you may also wander up from the Botanical gardens.
