One of only four observatories operating in the UK, Airdrie Observatory is of historical and scientific interest for both adults and children alike.

Located within Airdrie Library in Wellwynd, the Observatory is owned by North Lanarkshire Council and is operated on their behalf by the Airdrie Astronomical Association (AAA).

The observatory has recently been fully refurbished, a process which included the installation of a brand new dome and a complete overhaul of its historic telescope.

The Observatory is now once again a fully-functioning and unique facility, and is a great place to visit for all types of groups, societies and clubs. Our dedicated Curators can provide advice, hints and tips on all manner of space-related questions. Whether you are a complete beginner or have an existing interest in astronomy, a visit to the Observatory can be a fascinating and rewarding experience.

There is always something happening in this unique Observatory - from class visits, telescope tutorials and guest speakers, to open evenings, kids' activities and special events. You are most welcome to pop in for some heavenly views!
