  • one of my favorite places to go in boulder. i bike up there a few times a week for the ride and the view and access to some great hikes. the museum is somewhat small but has some cool hands-on stuff and is jam packed with info. I've actually been to the museum 3 times and still learn something new each time because there is a lot to read and view. i love visiting the outside of NCAR when the weather is great and the museum when the weather isn't so great.

  • Visited the lab/museum during the summer and it was an experience! Everything from: the interactive national weather displays, to the explanations of E.M. was just fantastic! Life's about learning, and you will learn a lot here and its fun! I didn't get to hike or bike up there, but its on my to do list on next years visit.

  • Fascinating! Excellent exhibits. Do the tour if you can because you'll discover a lot more info from the tour guide. Interactive displays include a tornado, sand dunes, and clouds. Incredible photos of the sun and explanations of its electromagnetic effect on Earth.

  • Great views, and an appropriately sized museum and exhibits detailing what NCAR does and why it's important. Special area telling the history of the architecturally significant building and layout. Area describing the computer sever racks/mainframe. Given that it's free, this is an incredible experience to see inside this important institution.

  • If one has never been here, one does not know what they are missing. Great place to visit with kids anytime of year. Great place to ride your bike to, motorized, or motored by you. Great place to hike anywhere from. Great place to learn about the atmosphere. And finally, great place to bring any kind of snow gliding equipment in the winter time or to fly one's stunt Kite from anytime of year (especially when the Chinook Winds come through in Indian summer).
