The Heritage Education Space (HECS) is devoted to local and expanded histories of Bidston Observatory. It is planned as a small, museum-like space, open to the public [?], and filled with astronomical, tidal and earth science lineages, alongside the rich histories of Bidston Hill.

For information about how to get involved in setting up or contributing to HECS, please see here.

As this is a community oriented project, the displays will change and grow over the coming years. Visitors can expect something different to a typical museum, as Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre is an embodied learning environment. The hope is for many of the instruments in the HECS to be activated, and the archive as accessible as possible. You will find many different and complex histories that describe Bidston Observatory’s relation to Liverpool and Britain, and to multiple sites in the world. It is possible to view some of the instruments that were used at the observatory
