A great place to spend at least part of a day. Their special exhibitions are always interesting. They have exhibits for children and a young children's play area. The telescopes are interesting and staffed by keen docents. Convenient parking and local buses stop here.

This center is well kept and gorgeous. There is so much to appreciate, learn from and discover. It is equally awesome for adults as it is for little ones.

On special evenings Chabot has their telescopes out for visitors to view events in the night sky. It's a wonderful way to introduce children, family and friends to this small but delightful observatory and museum. The exhibits are always informative and well-executed.
