Drop-in and Grounds Visits

The Observatory grounds are open Tuesday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., from March through November for free self-guided tours of the Star Chamber. All visitors must check-in at the Observatory office, and a visitor’s guide is available there.

Because there are times when the gate may be closed, or the Observatory is reserved for a special event, please contact us or call ahead to 615-373-4897 if you are planning to visit the Observatory or Star Chamber.
