Sydney Observatory - working museum where visitors can observe stars and planets in evenings

Baku, November 25, AZERTAC

Situated on top of Observatory Hill in the center of Sydney, the Sydney Observatory is a working museum where visitors can observe the stars and planets in the evenings. Built in 1858, the observatory was once a fort that only later evolved into an observatory. Today, it is one of the most significant sites in the nation’s scientific history. Visitors can view the night sky through a state-of-the-art Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope or a historic refractor telescope from the late 1800s.
The observatory also features a virtual reality 3-D space theater, digital planetarium, and a range of exhibitions about the history of Sydney Observatory, astronomy, and meteorology. Guided tours about science, archeology, and weather measuring can be booked for school and community groups.
