About Us
Directions and Parking

NCSA invites teachers and students, community groups, and everyone who is interested in science, technology, and innovation to tour our facilities and learn more about what we do.

A typical NCSA tour lasts about 45 minutes and includes:

  • An overview of NCSA's mission, the services it provides, and some of its current projects.
  • A look at artful 3D animations of scientific phenomena.
  • An exploration of our machine room, which houses some of the most powerful computers in the world.

Tours are scheduled Monday through Friday during standard working hours. It is best to contact us at least a week in advance to schedule your tour. Tour groups of 10 to 20 people are preferred; accommodations can sometimes be made for smaller and larger groups when staff are available.
