Prince George Observatory Tour
The Prince George Observatory is located at 7365 Tedford Road in Prince George, close to West Lake.
We have booked Monday March 6 for our visit. There is a maximum number of 45 people (parents and children combined). Cost is $2.50 per person. Our visit starts at 7pm, but we’ve been asked to arrive closer to 6:30pm. The visit is between 1.5 and 2 hrs.
Other details – there is an activity table. If the skies are cloudy, there are still learning activities to complete, but there won’t be much to see through the telescope. Clear skies will mean both the large telescope and additional smaller telescopes will be set up for viewing. If our group is large, we will divide into 2 groups, with students 10 and up in one group, and younger than 10 in the other.
Final notes: The observatory is cold. Come dressed to be outside, and appropriate for the weather. Encourage your kids to prepare any questions, if they are curious about anything related to space.
