Visit

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Lab sits nestled against the foothills to the Rocky Mountains in Boulder, Colorado. NCAR's Visitor Center connects scientific research about Earth system science, including weather and climate change, to the public through state-of-the-art exhibits, a variety of public tour options, and custom school field trips. For those who aren’t able to visit in person, we have several opportunities to virtually connect with us.
