Hyde Memorial Observatory is located on the south side of Holmes Lake in Southeast Lincoln Nebraska. From downtown take Normal Boulevard all the way to South 70th Street, then turn south (right) and continue (past the North Shore Road entrance) to the South Shore Road entrance to Holmes Park. This is the same entrance used to get to the golf course. Turn west (right) onto the South Shore Road and continue (past the golf course turnoff) until you see the observatory on your left.

Please Note The South Shore of Holmes Lake normally closes at 6 pm; however it will be kept open on those nights when Hyde Observatory is open, for Hyde Observatory patrons only.
