This is a must see place. Make your reservations at least a month in advance. We went in even though we did not have reservations. We were not able to make the tour, walking around first floor was fun. We saw the mock-ups that were used in the movie "Tornado". This is a must see!

Meteorology fans will like this. The National Weather Center is on the campus of Oklahoma State University, and is an impressive 6 story modern building housing the Storm Prediction Center, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and several other weather related government entities. Tours are led be meteorology grad students, last 90 minutes, and give you the highlights of the facility. You can buy souvenirs or have a snack at the "Flying Cow" Cafe!

This place is awesome. Humbling interaction with unbelievably smart weather folks. Cutting edge technology combined with some of the best severe forecasters in the world and a genuine passion for teachijg, collaboration, and moving the science forward. Worth the travel, no matter the distance!

We just did a group tour and it was well worth it. All ages are ok. A fantastic facility and our guide Patrick was awesome. He really enjoyed our time together and lives weather. Everyone have this a huge thumbs up.

Come visit the National Weather Center! As long as you set up a tour ahead of time (this is a federal facility, so you can't just show up unannounced) you can see what the folks at the Norman National Weather Service branch and the Storm Prediction Center are up to, as well as tour the research aspects through the National Severe Storms Laboratory and OU partnership. This means you get to see radar trucks and other vehicles used for field experiments. Come check it out, and bring your kids!
