The RAO is pleased to offer the following options for your group.
Tours of the RAO - Do you have a organization or youth group that would like to visit the observatory. Book a tour and see the awesome 1.8m ARCT (one of the largest telescopes in all of Canada!) and the amazing 0.5m Baker-Nunn telescope which continually scans the sky searching for "killer" asteroids! The RAO also has a Interpretive Centre with modern classroom facilities as well as a series of educational displays. Visits can be tailored to the desires and needs of your organization or youth group. A minimum of 10 people is required to book a tour. Cost is $100 for a group of 10 - 30 people, $200 for 31 - 60 people, etc.
Meeting Space Rentals - The RAO Interpretive Centre can be rented on a daily basis to groups seeking to host a meeting at a unique venue.
