more Barbados things to do

Harry Bayley Observatory

View the moon and other celestial objects at the Barbados observatory

Spend an evening star gazing in Barbados! Visit the local observatory for a chance to explore the heavens through a 16-inch Meade telescope.

Barbados' location gives you the opportunity to see the moon, planets and deep sky objects that are not visible from Europe or North America. This is a great attraction for the kids as they learn while having fun!

The Observatory was built in 1963 and is the only observatory in the Eastern Caribbean. In 2013/14 it was refurbished and re-equipped.

The Harry Bayley Observatory is open every Friday night. You can call 622-2000 to double-check.
