Herschel Museum of Astronomy
19 New King Street, Bath, BA1 2BL, South West
The Herschel Museum of Astronomy is opening its doors and the garden on Monday 21st June 2021 to do a bit of sun watching with visitors to the Museum. Not a bad thing to do on the Summer Solstice!
The opportunity is open to booked bubbles to have dedicated access to the Museum and the Bath Astronomers observing team in the garden who’ll show you your closest star and tell you all about it and the things you can see on it (using the right safety gear). Each session is an hour in duration. Prior booking required.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 21/06/2021
