A visit to LASP is similar to touring an aerospace museum. Hanging from the ceiling of the lobby is a 26-foot Aerobee 150 sounding rocket along with many other interesting spacecraft and historical objects. Visitors can view models of different spacecraft and satellites, a class-10,000 clean room, a machine shop for building instruments, and our Mission Operations Center from which we operate satellites.

LASP can accommodate groups of 10 to 40 individuals, during normal business hours (M – F; 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). Tours last approximately one hour.
