  • Take a walking tour of our research campus and step inside vacuum chambers, wind tunnels and other world-class facilities that have advanced aviation and space exploration.

  • See NASA aircraft used for aviation safety, technology and environmental research, including Lake Erie algae monitoring.

  • Talk to and ask questions of Glenn engineers, scientists and technicians to hear about the exciting work they’re doing right here in Cleveland.

  • See space exploration and aeronautics exhibits and demonstrations.

  • Attend special presentations by scientists and engineers.

  • Enjoy hands-on activities and interactive exhibits for kids of every age.

  • Get social with @NASAglenn during the open house social media scavenger hunts and meetups.
