Detroit Observatory

bhl_hs2510_4074_2853_full__0_nativeThe Detroit Observatory was the first observatory built in the state of Michigan and is the second-oldest building still standing on UM’s campus. In 2005, the Detroit Observatory became a division of the Bentley Historical Library.

The Observatory is currently slated for renovations that will add square footage, as well as on-site improvements including increased accessibility and greater connectivity.

No programming — including viewing nights and open houses — is scheduled right now. Stay tuned!
