The Allegheny Observatory Open house is held once a year and it differs from the tour in that more of the building is opened to the public. Instead of having a tour guide, you follow a designated tour path around the building. Both of the main telescopes are outfitted for visual use and the members of the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh set up additional telescopes on the front lawn. Open house is a family night therefore the maximum group size is approximately six.
You must get tickets to this event and they are free of charge you may do so by calling Allegheny Observatory at 412-321-2400. Reservations will be taken beginning at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday August 1st 2018.
