Founded in 1894, this hilltop center with giant telescopes offers tours, solar viewing & stargazing.- Google
"Checking out the telescopes and first-rate museum is always worth it."
"We drove down from the Grand Canyon to go to the Observatory."

We drove down from the Grand Canyon to go to the Observatory. Almost an hour drive. We arrived at 4:30. We were told that one telescope was under construction and another was closed. My husband and I toured the whole park to find everything closed. He is a disable Vet and has trouble walking among many other health issues. There was one Lecture starting at 5:00 but everything else would still be closed. What a huge disappointment! The only one while visiting beautiful Arizona.

This is Adriber I will always provide the best and honest reviews. This is a beautiful big park. Great place to visit with friends or family and Learn about the universe. Depending on the month you can see a different planet using one of their many telescopes. The staff are very friendly. As always I'm the firm believer of quality over quantity. This is my review and remember always look for adriber for the best and honest review.

Great place to visit with the whole family! Tours and lectures are well worth the time - particularly the Pluto tour.

We were very excited to go to the Observatory. after many many hours of driving we finally made it. When we walked in we went to go pay in the gift shop and the young man with the long ponytail charged us and went through the pamphlet which everyone gets when they pay.. between all of us in our party there were 4 adults and 3 children.. he very unenthusiastically went through all of the lectures, and shows which were listed and informed us that there would be no telescope viewing ( mind you- they inform you that there is no telescope viewing AFTER you pay) Instead of suggesting ( like a helpful employee would) that there is a child friendly show/experiment happening soon... he said nothing.. All of their shows seem to have very catchy titles BUT BEWARE they are NOT kid friendly.. ONLY the one which the not very helpful employees failed to tell us about was... so in in end we saw nothing.. we went to a very informative lecture which we had to walk out of because it was NOT KID FRIENDLY... the observatory was not even busy.. when I went back into the lobby... nothing was even going on.. there was no reason why the employees could not have been more helpful and instead of chatting among themselves they could have directed us to the the fun experiment KID FRIENDLY show that was going on.. .WHAT A BUST.. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN TO THIS PLACE IF YOU ARE EXPECTING THEM TO HAVE A FUN EXPERIENCE LEARNING ABOUT STARS THE GALAXY AND SCIENCE....you could do a better job yourself taking them to the library or sitting them in front of a PBS Magic School Bus episode... VERY VERY VERY UNHAPPY with this place...

Great experience! Although the big Clark telescope was undergoing maintenance, they did have the other big telescope viewing Saturn. Three other portable scopes were set up on the grounds to view other things. Fascinating and the staff were very knowledgeable. They shared lots of info and answered questions. We got there at 8:30 pm and missed the talks (open till 10) but it was well worth it for the views. We even saw the international space station go by and also a couple other satellites. My 12 yr old son loved it! It is breezy up on the hill at night and you will have to stand in short lines to look thru the scopes.

Simply the best time I had in flagstaff. I would not have known to ask if the telescopes were an option if I had not read the previous comments thanks for the info.

Had a lot of fun last Friday with their lecture about the sky and Jupiter. Definitely a place to see if you're visiting Flagstaff!
