For the first time ever we are offering a special December Lantern Light Tour of the Portland Observatory.  Take a lantern light guided tour to the top of the tower while enjoying stories of winter weather, holidays, Capt. Moody and more. Each tour is approximately 25 minutes and includes plenty of time at the top to enjoy a view of Portland at night.

The first floor will be decorated in twinkle lights and the gift shop will be open for any Observatory gifts you may need! In addition, local Munjoy Hill artist, Dominic White will be on hand.

$5/person. Tickets are only available at the door on a first come first serve basis. Each tour limited to 12 people. Tours will leave every half hour starting at 5:30 pm. Last tour leaves at 7:30 pm.

True to its 1807 design the Observatory is not heated. 
Please dress warmly.
