Schoonover Observatory Reviews & Ratings

  • The gentlemen working were so nice and knowledgeable, they took the time to make sure we got to see Saturn by moving and changing the lens. I recommend everyone visit! They run on donations, so dont forget at least a few dollars.

  • Very cool to see the rings of Saturn and the 4 moons of Jupiter through the big telescope.

  • Love taking my boys here. We always learn new things and get to see cool things.

  • The people are friendly here. N if your into stars n plantets this is the place to come. N you get to go up into the dome n look through a huge telescope too.

  • Not enough activities for families... Maybe they should have a playground towards the front of the place.
