The Dudley Observatory provides education and outreach programs designed to bring the wonders of science, particularly astronomy, to people of all ages. We cultivate interest and understanding of science, science careers and scientists, and help the public appreciate science in an approachable and enjoyable way. Our long-standing commitment to the history of astronomy, and our library and artifact collection, serve as the platforms from which to launch vibrant and expanding educational programs.
