Mills Observatory, one of Dundee’s best loved and iconic attractions, has now re-opened with a fantastic family friendly Winter Programme.

Alongside regular Saturday Stars events, there will be fortnightly Winter Planetarium shows until the end of March 2020 where attendees can take a tour of the night sky and learn about constellations, galaxies and latest space news. There are always opportunities for learn and play with an astro-cart packed full of fun, self directed activities to help younger visitors learn more about space travel and the universe. Additionally, guided visits for Schools and Community Groups are available to book throughout the winter

The observatory will also continue its Outer Space|Inner Space collaboration with the University of Dundee to promote an interactive, science outreach programme which promotes cutting-edge research from School of Life Sciences.
