Starry Night at the Museum

About the Event

Join us at Maryhill Museum of Art for a summer tradition – a magical overnight campout and stargazing experience in one of the most majestic settings imaginable. Volunteer Astronomers will provide telescopes to give visitors awe-inspiring views of the summer night sky over the Columbia River Gorge. Catch glimpses of the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy, Sagittarius, Jupiter, Venus and Mars! 

Learn about the stars during a twilight conversation or explore the museum, which will be open late. Visitors who wish to stargaze without camping, are welcome. Only ticket holders for the event will be allowed entry to the museum grounds after 5pm.
