Weather Station Tours

Click Here to Register

Go behind the scenes of our famous mountaintop weather station and get a taste for what it's like to live and work at 6,288 feet!

These guided tours allow you to meet and interact with our scientists, learn how they create forecasts, see the instruments they use to capture Mount Washington's legendary extremes, and more.

Our weather station is located inside the Mt. Washington State Park Sherman Adams Visitor Center, so tours are available whenever the Visitor Center is open (generally mid-May through mid-October). Hours vary by month. Please make a reservation to ensure availability.

Reservations

Our mountaintop facility is a working weather station, so advanced reservations are required. Though we try our best to accommodate all requests, we appreciate your understanding that we may not always be able to conduct a tour during your requested time.

Although our weather station is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, tours are only available when the Mt. Washington State Park Sherman Adams Visitor Center is open to the public. To view Center hours, visit the Mt. Washington State Park website.

To schedule a tour, click the Register Here button at the top of the page or please call (603) 356-2137, ext. 211, or email us.

Cost

Tours are free for supporting members of Mount Washington Observatory. Family memberships include tours for all individuals living under one roof. Club Level members may bring guests.

Non-members wishing to tour the station may purchase a membership online (at least one week in advance), or in person at the summit.

Directions

Our weather station is located inside the Mt. Washington State Park Sherman Adams Visitor Center. For directions to Mt. Washington State Park on the summit of Mount Washington, please visit our Getting & Staying Here page.

Once at the summit, proceed inside the Visitor Center and check in with the attendant at our Extreme Mount Washington museum (located in the lower level of the building). The attendant will advise you where to meet your tour. If you arrive after your scheduled tour has departed, we will do our best to accommodate you on the next available tour.
