Our Guided Bus Tour features science demonstrations and a short film about the world-class Green Bank Telescope (GBT). This tour continues with a bus excursion through our gates into the electronics-restricted Zone 1 for an up-close look at our telescopes - from the pioneering instruments of the 1950s, to the world's largest fully-steerable telescope, the GBT. Ticket includes tour and access to our Science Center to visit the Exhibit Hall, Gift Shop and Starlight Cafe.
