NASA Wallops Visitor Center - About Us
WELCOME TO THE VISITOR CENTER Return to Visitor Center Site


The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops Flight Facility is the place to explore the past, present, and future of NASA's Wallops Flight Facility. Featuring exhibits about the history of Wallops, the science behind aeronautics, the programs carried out at Wallops, and current/upcoming Wallops missions, the Visitor Center is fun and educational for all ages - you don't have to be a space enthusiast to have a good time. We offer numerous free group programs and weekly activities that are available to the public and we coordinate activities with astronomical events. Not to mention, the Visitor Center is the perfect viewing site for rocket launches from Wallops Island. Our exhibits are constantly being updated. Be sure to check out the newly renovated auditorium complete with a nine-television high-definition display and the rooftop viewing area available to the public. Located inside the Visitor Center, the Gift Shop, open seasonally, offers models, patches, games, clothing and a variety of NASA souvenirs. There's something here for everyone!
