The Vsetín observatory (Hvězdárna) is located near the Vsetín Castle on Jabloňová Street, which takes you from Horní náměstí to the cemetery. The observatory was founded in 1950 and since 2005 it has been operating as a part of the Muzeum of Moravian Wallachia Region. The observatory does educational programmes about natural sciences for the public. The programmes present astronomy, space travel and related topics to children and adults, who can view the sky at night and during the day or take part in lectures and discussions. The observatory believes in an informal approach to the public and the staff strive to make astronomy, meteorology and other scientific research fun for the whole family.
