NASA Glenn is located at Lewis Field, a 350-acre site, adjacent to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, upon which the main campus is built. Since the
at Cleveland on January 23, 1941, for the then Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory of the former National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, more than $433 million has been invested in the Center's capital plant; estimated replacement cost is approximately $1.6 billion. While facility tours are limited to research partners through special arrangements, Glenn's Visitor Center is open to the public 7 days a week (excluding major holidays). |
NASA Glenn also incorporates the 6400-acre Plum Brook field station near Sandusky, Ohio, 50 miles west of Cleveland. It specializes in very large-scale tests which would be hazardous within the confines of the main campus. More than $102 million has been invested in Plum Brook's capital plant; estimated replacement cost is approximately $651 million.
