Town Center group tours are designed for groups of 10 or more and a three-week advance notice is appreciated. Tours take place on the first floor of the Discovery Building (Town Center) and include a general overview of the unique physical features of the building, the Discovery partnership, research within the institutes and information about ongoing programs. Tours are limited to the first floor; we are unable to provide tours of the lab and research environments. Tours are approximately 30-45 minutes long.

The following group tour application is designed to gather information about your tour needs. Submission does not guarantee a tour date; tours are confirmed based on the availability of our tour guides. Questions about Town Center group tours should be directed to Debbie Edge at or 608.316.4484.
