Explore the sky with the Bell Museum. FREE telescope observing nights take place monthly during the University’s Fall and Spring semesters. These are very informal and family-friendly.

Start the night inside the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium for a brief presentation of Winter Sky Tonight. After the planetarium show, the evening will continue with telescopes on our rooftop observation deck, as well as hands-on activities inside. Bell Museum staff will guide you through observations of the same celestial objects that have inspired sky-gazers throughout history!

Free overflow parking and shuttle service is available in the back lot of the SPIRE Credit Union (2025 Larpenteur Ave W), a two-minute drive from the Bell.
