Description

Four passes to explore space at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona.

A visit to Lowell begins in the 6,500-square-foot Steele Visitor Center, where you will get you started on your journey of exploration. There are tours and multimedia shows as well as fascinating, interactive exhibits.

Tour the facility with friendly, knowledgeable guides. Experience the cosmos though widescreen multimedia shows, exhibits, live presentations, and SlipherVision, our immersive space theater.  Peer through telescopes at night or see the instrument that helped gather the first evidence of the expanding Universe. 

A private, non-profit research institution founded in 1894 by Percival Lowell, Lowell Observatory is among the oldest observatories in the United States and is a Registered National Historic Landmark. The Observatory's original 24-inch Alvan Clark Telescope is still in use today for public education. The 4.3-meter, $53 million Discovery Channel Telescope is the flagship instrument for our second century of discovery.
