Fodor's Review

Reopened in January 2014 with a fresh interior, high-tech fittings, a new dome, and new Meade 16-inch telescope equipped with the latest robotic controls and digital cameras, the observatory lets you view the moon, stars, planets, and other astronomical objects that may not be visible from mainland North America or Europe. The evening program, which starts with an informative presentation, is run by volunteers; call ahead to make sure it's open. The observatory has been the headquarters of the Barbados Astronomical Society since 1963.
