The Historic Collection

Telescopes, instruments, clocks, pictures, models and more.


The GUFLAS group was formed in the fall of 2023 and tasked with improving the documentation and registration of our collection of historical astronomical instruments, photos and artifacts.  

The collection (currently) contains approximately 300 objects, many of which are on display at the Department of Physics or in the Astronomy building.
