What a great tour....and free! Learnt so much and our tour guide was very fun and interesting. If you have even the slightest interest in weather it is a must!!! 2 hours well spent in my opinion and followed by a very well priced snack in the Flying Cows Cafe there....bought one of the tshirts :)

Took a very interesting tour (about two hours long) with Pat. He did such a great job outlining the role of the weather service. One of those things you take for granted (or grumble about) and now it was demystified! Highly recomment!

Very informative and interesting, even for someone not that much into weather. Our student guide was very friendly and knew her stuff. Nice that's it free. Thankfully we knew to make reservations ahead of time for the tour.

We were met by a man without any personality asking what he could do for us. My husband said, This is our first time here. The attendant replied I need your licenses and lower your voice. We were talking on a normal tone. There wasn't a sign on the door to be quiet. The gentleman gave us a badge to wear & told us to stay on first floor. There was nothing to see but offices. We returned to the lobby within minutes & handed in our badges. Then the attendant said you have to call ahead for a tour. Disappointed & embarrassed.

The locations is easy to find -- right off highway 9. Plenty of parking. You have to have clearance or with someone who has clearance to gain entry. Massive space with cool things happening.
