We wanted to tour this facility. But guided tours fill up fast. We tried to sign up for a tour about a week in advance, but they tours were filled a month in advance. We still want to see this center. We did stop by to self tour the first floor, but not a lot to see. Spent about 30... More

One fall I was asked to act as a chaperone for 2 field trips to the National Weather Center with the elementary school where I worked. Now I work with disaster relief efforts within the Norman region. The tour I took with the kids helped me see ways that examining the science of weather helps kids feel less powerless and... More

A highlight of visiting Norman is a trip to the National Weather Center, home of the National Weather Service - Norman, Storm Prediction Center, Mesonet and Meteorology School of OU. The tour is free but you must register in advance as it is a Federal Building. If you are interested in weather or meteorology, this is the place to go.Tour... More

Folks, if you're in the Norman, OK, area, find some time and take the tour of the National Weather Center! Very informative, educational, and, thanks to Gary England, entertaining! Well worth the time.

The National Weather Center is a great place to see. Take a tour of the facility and learn how the weather is forecasted. See the meteorologist at work viewing the nation LIVE. Learn how the weather is predicted and which organization forecast weather in different regions. How does the weather affect our climate and daily activities? See the students work... More

Visited the Weather Center in the midst of tornado season. Very interesting. Not just for the 'weather wonk' as the building construction itself was interesting. Seeing the storm prediction center and the storm tracker vehicles was cool. I learned how the weather radar works. Our guide was a recent graduate of OU's meteorology department and was spot on with details.... More

Another mom and I took our teenage sons on a visit to the National Weather Center because my son thought he wanted to be a meteorologist as an adult. I thought this would be a good tour to show him what a meteorologist does. We were very appreciative that the tour was offered, but honestly found it a bit boring.... More

Her name was Nicole and she is a grad student at OU in Music (opera) but has a passion for weather so she also studied Meteorology. She knows her stuff! The tour... More
