NOIRLab Visits


Here you will find information on the types of visits we offer, safety, requirements for visiting, what you can expect, and a form for requesting your visit. NOIRLab offers Media and Public and Educational visits to its facilities in Arizona, Hawai‘i and Chile. 

‍‍Each NOIRLab site is situated in unique locations with considerations that are particular to their locale. When selecting the site you are interested in visiting, you will be guided through a list of restrictions that you should carefully consider before submitting your request. The facilities have limited capacity and the visits are organized in such a way that they do not disturb the operation of the 24-7 operations of the cutting-edge observatories.
