Under the Glass Tour

The Under-the-Glass Tour experience perfect for visitors who truly want to explore this amazing facility and current scientific research.

With your expert guide, you will enjoy the beautiful trail system as you wander through the Rainforest, walk across the Ocean overlook, explore the Coastal Fog Desert, and travel through the underground technosphere, descending into one of the amazing ‘lungs’ – an engineering marvel – that helped moderate air pressure in the sealed B2 environment. The Under-the-Glass Tour last a little over an hour and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis every day of the year except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. SEE ACCESSIBILITY GUIDELINES.

The Under-the-Glass Tour is currently being run as a structured flow-through.  This means we have gudies stationed throughout the Biosphere to provide content but visitors are able to stroll through and enjoy the facility at thier own pace.
