DDO Family Night

Family Nights are a great introduction to the night sky for our younger guests. Look through telescopes, make some space crafts, visit the Skylab and find out what's really up there! 

Family Nights require tickets to be purchased in advance. This program runs regardless of sky or weather conditions. If skies are clear you can check out the night sky through a variety of telescopes including the biggest optical telescope in Canada! The evening also includes a presentation in our new Skylab that offers great (virtual) night sky viewing.

For safety reasons, children under 7 years of age not permitted in the big dome, but are welcome to look through the smaller telescopes on the lawn.

Who can attend: everyone including non-members
Location: David Dunlap Observatory (DDO)
Fee: $8.00 per person
Tickets must be bought in advance on the David Dunlap Observatory (DDO) website
