Why visit us?

There are at least five good reasons to visit the NLO:

  • in the planetarium begin to find your way around the night sky
  • see three historic telescopes
  • find out how helium was discovered and where it was first found
  • learn a little of the life and work of Lockyer, founder-editor of the journal 'Nature'
  • get an idea of how astronomy, the oldest science, turned into astrophysics, the most modern, and the part Lockyer played in this

....and seeing through the telescopes would be a bonus.
