Built in 1963, the Harry Bayley Observatory recently underwent a total restoration of the building and refurbishment of its astronomical instruments in 2014.
The observatory is managed by The Barbados Astronomical Society Inc., A non-profit corporation whose objective is to educate the general public, with an emphasis on students, in the subject of astronomy.
The observatory is open on Friday evenings from 8 pm to 10 pm (weather permitting). The public can view a 1/2 hour interactive presentation from 8pm before enjoying superb views of the night sky through our 16" Meade telescope.
Minimum donations are USD$10 (BBD$20) for adults, USD$5 (BBD$10) for children 5 to 12, and free for children under 5.
