Access for Visitors with Disabilities
The Observatory building is accessible with ramps. Restrooms are accessible. The classroom presentation and observing with both the 40″ telescope and the 14″ digital telescope are accessible. Other telescopes must be used while standing. When necessary, we can help you park your vehicle in a designated space near the building.
Please inform the parking attendants if you require this service. Accessibility stickers are hard to see in the dark!
Museums for All
RFO is a proud participant in the Museums for All initiative, a collaboration with the Institute of Museum and Library Services to offer access to the observatory with free admission to our public star parties. Guests with an EBT card can present it at the entrance for free admission up to four guests (two adults, two children), including the guest. Parking fees for attending the public star party will also be waived.
