Visits to the WNPRC

All in person outreach visits are suspended until further notice


Public outreach activities at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center include hosting school visits, providing guest speakers and participating in state and national science outreach festivals.

The Wisconsin National Primate Research Center welcomes visitors to its Marmoset Learning Lobby 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday–Friday and two Saturday afternoons per year for UW-Madison Science Expeditions in the spring and the Wisconsin Science Festival in the fall.

Please contact UW-Madison Campus Visit Program to schedule your group’s visit to the Primate Center and other UW-Madison venues.

To learn more about our research and animal care and visiting the center, you may also email Jordana Lenon or call 608-263-7024.

Our lobby entrance is located on Capitol Court, three blocks south of the Discovery Building and Union South on Orchard St., and one block south of the Geology Museum on Charter St. The entrance is the double blue doors closest to the Capitol and Coyne Court intersections.

We also conduct outreach programs in partnership with the Biotechnology Center, the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center and other campus entities. (Contact us for classroom stem cell teaching resources!)

Thanks to an increasing group of dedicated scientists, staff members and students, our outreach activities have reached more than 55,000 individuals from Wisconsin and beyond since 2010. Thank you to our many diverse audiences –we appreciate your interest!
