The policy of the Armagh Observatory is to preserve and progressively
restore the historic instruments, buildings and telescopes for future
generations, and where possible make them available for display to
visitors and the general public.
In future years, subject to available funding, the Observatory plans to:
- construct a new archive and historic instrument repository including
an extension of the Library and Library Annex;
- construct a reception and exhibition area to present the current and
previous astronomical work at the Observatory;
- upgrade the grounds and Astropark and reinstate the area immediately
around the Observatory to its original eighteenth-century design.
