The ONPRC welcomes groups of 10 or more persons ages 10 or older. Tours are scheduled Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. Over 3,500 people visit the Center each year, including elementary and middle school students; high school groups; undergraduate and graduate student groups; civic groups and other organizations; and members of the general public. Tours are designed to accommodate the special interests of each group. Depending on group size and interest, tours may feature an interactive presentation about science methods, a presentation about current center research projects, a visit to the outdoor corrals to observe the Center's rhesus and Japanese macaque breeding colonies, a Center scientist discussing his/her research, and/or a tour of selected labs. (Lab tours available for groups of fewer than 16 persons only).
All tours are free of charge, and provide an opportunity to learn more about the role of nonhuman primates in biomedical research and to observe nonhuman primate behavior. Please allow 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
