See what Space City is all about this weekend at the re-opening of the George Observatory! The observatory first opened in 1989 and run until temporarily closing in 2019 for a “much needed makeover”. This weekend, the Houston Museum of Natural Science is reopening their totally revamped observatory!

“The George Observatory is back and better than ever, and welcomes you to experience the wonders of the galaxy once again,” the museum wrote in an Instagram post.

Here, stargazers can see live feeds of brilliant constellations through their state-of-the-art telescopes, muse over the Milky Way with astronomical experts, and embark on a laser tour of the universe.


Tickets are now on sale for Saturday stargazing this spring.

“Come see what you’ve been missing… with remote viewing tech for the dome and deck telescopes, laser sky tour, expert presentations and an all-new exhibit area!”

Due to the current circumstances, ticket availability is limited with advance ticket purchase required. Face masks required for visitors 10 years old and older.
