He constructed a telescope and observed that we have a sun-centered solar system. To celebrate this great achievement we invite you to spend a fun filled day of making your own discoveries! Use a Gallileoscope and learn how telescopes work. Build and test your personally engineered flying machine marvels, meet Galileo characters and see through our own world renowned telescopes.
