Observatory Tour and Public Viewing



Andreas Observatory may be open to the public occasionally during the academic year. Dates and times of upcoming events will be announced here.

Andreas Observatory 2006

Visitors to Andreas Observatory may hear a talk, tour the building, inspect the observing equipment, and view images stored on the observatory computers. And if the night is sufficiently clear, they will have a chance to look through one of the largest telescopes in Minnesota.

Visitors should park at the south end of Lot 1 and WALK to the observatory – a distance of about 600 yards.

If the skies are not sufficiently clear at the scheduled viewing time each evening, the observatory will not be open.
