EXHIBITIONS

The time when astronomers studied the seemingly endless expanses of space here is over, but the wish to bring light into darkness lives on. Inspired by this spirit, Old Observatory introduces an interactive permanent exhibition which contains both seasoned old and innovative new artefacts.
