The observatory is open Friday and Saturday evenings from May - September, when the weather is clear.  Tours of the observatory are available, and look at the universe through a 15 or 24-inch telescope.  The 24" telescope has a digital camera on it, so you can take home a picture of the cosmos on a disk.  There is a $3 requested donation for the observatory.
