Naylor Observatory Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful place to bring the family for a night of stargazing! Knowledgeable volunteers willing to share about anything and everything space related!
Great place to see the stars for the amateur and professional alike.
I love the public observation nights. The volunteers are very knowledgeable. Remember to bring money for a donation for their organization. It's not required but helps them keep it open to the public. I wish they'd ask visitors to keep their cell phone use to emergencies only.
The staff were welcoming and informative and more than happy to answer all of our annoying questions. I cannot wait to become a member!! To people visiting please don't be on your phone and taking flash pictures.. the night is supposed to be beautiful in the complete Darkness.. It is extremely inconsiderate to the ones who actually love the night sky.
Sorry I couldn't post any pictures; No flash photography allowed. :-) This place is well run. They have people directing traffic during special events , and are super friendly. They are also great with the younger kids, and provide educational materials free of charge, but gladly accept donations.
