The NASA Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field offers tours that provide an inspiring, behind-the-scenes look at NASA. Visitors can explore America's research facilities and see where scientists and engineers develop propulsion, power and communication technologies for NASA's aeronautics and space programs.
From April through October, they offer public tours of its research facilities once a month. A tour bus departs from Glenn's main gate every hour beginning at 8:00 a.m. The last tour departs at 11:00 a.m. Each tour lasts about 45 minutes and is followed by a stop at Glenn's Gift Shop.
