Refurbishment of Carter Observatory
Carter Observatory closed its doors to the public on May 3 for several months, while it is given a major refurbishment.
The refurbishment will be in two parts, the renovation of the building and the making of new displays.
The historic exterior of the building will stay the same but the interior will be dramatically changed so that it is much more visitor friendly. The original design was of a series of offices and rooms which was not suitable for the smooth flow of visitors. The new design will open up spaces so that there is a natural flow and defined direction for visitors.
It is hoped that the Observatory will reopen in November. More details of the opening will be announced when they are available.
