Lick Observatory serves as a leading observational astronomy research and education center open to students, professionals and public. Each half hour, a 15-minute presentation on the history of the observatory is shown in the 36 inch telescope dome. Some of its attractions include the Great Lick Refractor, the Shane Reflector, astronomical catalogs, various displays and more. In the summer it offers a visitor's program where the public gets the opportunity to gaze through two Lick telescopes as well as a concert series. An on-site shop sells souvenir apparel and gifts with an astronomical flair. Admission is free.
