Group Tours



The York University Observatory offers private tours for school groups, youth organizations, clubs, and large groups of interested individuals.  These can include slide show presentations, tours of our facilities, live demonstrations and hands-on activities, and of course, viewing through the telescopes when conditions permit.

Note: Due to COVID19 all private tours and live demonstrations can be given through zoom. Hands on activities may require print-outs or use of a computer screen. Please let us know via email if you are interested.

These private tours are open to any group of 10 or more. Please contact us at to schedule a visit.  We look forward to seeing you!

Note: We are unable to accomodate tours on Wednesday nights due to our weekly public viewing sessions, which run at the same time. For the Regular Free Public Viewing Schedule see the schedule on our main page!
