Guided Tours for Groups

Due to the coronavirus, our tours are replaced by virtual sessions.

Groups of 15 people or more can book a virtual meetup with one of our scientists, through Skype or Zoom. Because these sessions are virtual, there is no maximum group size.

During these meetups, we can show our telescope domes, explain all about life in an astronomy institute and how the students use the telescopes for their very first observing sessions. Of course you get plenty of time to ask any quesions you may have about astronomy. If you have a specific subject you are particularly interested in, please let us know and we can make sure to cover this.

It's best to request the session at least 4 weeks in advance, by e-mailing to outreach-astro-science@uva.nl . Please include in this e-mail any preferred dates or weekedays, times or timeslots and subjects.
