Digital Exhibits

Our digital exhibit collection provides an opportunity for the Observatory to highlight aspects of Palomar's history and community in focused, thematic media collections. Exhibits allow us to delve deeper into more nuanced aspects of Palomar's arc and showcase the Observatory's rich history and many cultural connections. While this exhibit collection is still small, it will continue to grow over time as we develop additional content from an expanding set of contributors.

We hope you enjoy our exhibit collection.
