  • The Research Center houses a wonderful small science museum showcasing the beauty and uniqueness of Lake Tahoe (it’s huge, very pure and very deep!), and the environmental challenges it faces...

  • Loved the video about the formation of Lake Tahoe as well as the various exhibits that explained all the research conducted in and around the Lake.

  • Very interesting. The tour is geared to middle school and higher, the hands on experiments (though cool) are geared for much younger. Masks will be required as of Aug. 2 2021. The 3d video was very well done. As is the sand box experiment that shows how water sheds work. Child in photo bent at 90 degree is 15 trying to use the microscopes. Perhaps stools for tall kids who want to participate.
  • A great place to take kids, teens & other family members to learn about the ecology of Lake Tahoe and the efforts being made to keep it a beautiful gem. I wouldn't have gone here if we didn't have a house full of teens and 3 rainy days in a row during a summer visit, but I'm sure glad we did. Totally worth it.
