Fodor's Review

At the top of a thickly forested hill, Mills Observatory is the only full-time public observatory in Britain. There are displays on astronomy, space exploration, scientific instruments, and a 12-inch refracting telescope for night viewing of the stars and planets. Dundonians flock here when there's a solar or lunar event. If one happens during your visit, don't miss this universally happy experience.
