Fodor's Review

Here you can lie back and watch an almost limitless range of virtual space journeys in the planetarium; or, on a clear night, view the heavens through the observatory telescope. Such experiences—plus state-of-the-art displays and a remarkable collection of artifacts that includes the oldest working telescope of its kind in the country—make this a popular stop. The observatory is only a two-minute walk from the top of the Kelburn Cable Car, but you can also wander up from the botanical gardens.
