The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research is happy to offer guided tours of the National Center for Atmospheric Research Mesa Laboratory Visitor Center in Boulder. Our experienced guides will showcase this beautiful building, designed by legendary architect I.M. Pei and completed in 1966. Through the guided tours and in their own independent time in the Visitor Center, attendees will be treated to unique Front Range vistas, explore the interactive exhibits, and have the option of walking the .5-mile Walter Orr Roberts Weather Trail behind the building. This event is also open to families of attendees. Registration is required. Registration fee for adults is $25. Children under the age of 12 may attend for free. Please contact Christine Card, [email protected], for additional information on a child ticket.
