Sunspot Solar Observatory has been a premier facility for solar research since its establishment in 1947. Bring your group and escape to a fun and educational adventure through our observatory. Test your knowledge of the sun and solar system as you explore the exhibits in the museum. Take a walking tour of the property as we share the history and science conducted in each of the facilities. Included in the tour is an inside view of the last active telescope. Inside the telescope you will learn about the unique, state-of-the-art instruments we use to study the Sun. Participate in hands-on learning activities where concepts like How Big is the Sun?, Why is the Sky Blue?, Magnetism, and Reflection and Refraction are explored.
