The Ladd Observatory is an astronomical and educational facility at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The building was designed by architects Stone, Carpenter, and Willson. It opened in 1891 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Observatory has a collection of 19th and early 20th century scientific instruments including telescopes, precision pendulum clocks, weather instruments, telegraph and wireless equipment. Today the facility is operated as a living museum. It is open to the public for telescope observing on Tuesday evenings.

Thanks, Jacob!
