Queen's Observatory 


The first Queen's Observatory was established in the mid-19th century, the beginning of a long and distinguished history of astronomical observing at Queen's University. The current Observatory houses a 14-inch reflecting telescope in a dome on the roof of Ellis Hall, used primarily for student training and public demonstrations. 

There are public tours and school tours. For more detailed information on tours and programs, please visit the website for more information at www.observatory.phy.queensu.ca.
