Observatory Tours

The Kalium Observatory is open for public viewing on various Fridays throughout the year. The observatory is staffed both rain or shine and admission is free. Please note that when cloud, rain, high winds or cold (-20 C ) conditions prevail, there will be no viewing at the dome but you can still examine the equipment.

Observatory tours begin in the Imax theatre lobby. Astronomy club members or Imax staff will assist you in finding the way to the dome. Please see below for the 2018 dates and times. If you wish to visit the observatory, please ensure you are at the Imax entrance for the start of the observing session. If you arrive after the start time, the doors might be locked. 

Click here if you would like to arrange an observatory tour for your brownies, guides, cubs, scouts, or school group. Due to demand for tours, we cannot accommodate individual tours.
