The Cincinnati Observatory is one of the most unique astronomical institutions in the United States. It is a fully functioning 19th century observatory used daily by the public and amateur astronomers, civic organizations, teachers and students, history buffs and science mavens. 

Located atop the rolling hills of Mt. Lookout, the Observatory is home to the world's oldest telescope still in use nightly by the general public. Two handsome National Historic Landmark buildings and the beautiful joinstampgrounds provide a serene, park-like setting while still being centrally located in the city of Cincinnati. 

Experience one of the most awe-inspiring centers in the region. Become a member and help us maintain an important part of Cincinnati's and the nation's scientific and architectural heritage.
