THINGS TO DO IN CINCINNATI - CINCINNATI OBSERVATORY
My family's experience at the Observatory can be read here (towards the bottom of the post). The Cincinnati Observatory website can provide you with program dates and times, as well as history and directions here. Check out the links under "Public Events" for what's coming up. There are weekly Astronomy Thursdays and Astronomy Fridays (we attended the former) which involve a lecture, followed by a brief tour and then a viewing through the telescope. The particular Astronomy Thursday we attended had a mix of age groups, although it was a little technical for my kids and they got squirmy. My son, though, declared that getting to see Saturn through that telescope made everything worthwhile. In addition, there are a variety of special events throughout the year. Check their calendar for the latest information here. Please note that the rooms with the telescopes are the same temperature as the outside air. Therefore, if you go on an extremely hot or extremely cold day, be prepared for feeling like you're outdoors.
