We went because it was free with the Prague Pass, and it's right next to Petrin Hill, Petrin Tower and the mirror maze. The exhibitions are all in Czech and English, there are a lot of interactive displays and it's a nice change from all...More

Interesting exhibition. Two domes open housing lovely Karl Zeiss telescopes. Knowledgeable staff - English speaking. This was a fascinating way to spend 45 minutes and well worth the paultry entrance fee. Both telescopes were in use, showing a daylight lunar crescent and a solar disk...More

We had walked up Petrin hill and the lookout tower was busy-so we ended up going to the observatory. The door was closed and we weren't sure if it was open, but we're glad we went in. One lady guide who was supervising the telescope...More

We just found this by accident and it turned out to be the highlight of my visit. Such knowledgeable people and we got to see sunspots and Venus too. Such good value too.

The day of my visit was cloudy. Do not believe that they have observation tours independently of the weather. They do! On a cloudy day everything you may receive is observation of people on Petrin Tower :) They have relative (to Observatory) expositions, not much...More
