Tours are given year-round at OVRO on the first Monday of every month unless it is a holiday. If the first Monday is a holiday, then the tour is on the second Monday. All tours start at 1 p.m. and last about an hour. Reservations are not required and there is no cost.
Tours for schools and large groups can be arranged at other times by contacting me at the email address above, or by mail or by phone:
