The museum’s observatory, located on the second floor adjacent to the temporary exhibit gallery, is Albuquerque’s window on the galaxy!  The Meade LX200 telescope is open for safe viewing of the sun from 10 – 10:40 a.m. Tuesday – Sunday.  The observatory magnifies wonders of the night sky during the Starry Night programs each month.
