Mills Observatory

Dundee West End

Welcome to Mills Observatory
Britain's only full-time public observatory enjoys a magnificent woodland setting on the summit of Balgay Hill. Watch stars and planets through our Victorian telescope, or admire the scenery with some spectacular treetop vistas across ‘the silvery Tay'.
With fascinating space exploration and astronomical displays, planetarium shows and a fully computerised telescope that can detect 30,000 objects in the sky, there's so much to see, do and learn! Our friendly staff are on hand to help and advise.

Wheelchair and disabled access is to the ground floor only but a webcam attached to the dome telescopes on the first floor allows viewing on a screen at ground level.

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
