SPIF for the General Public

As a member of the Regional Planetary Image Facility Network (RPIF-N), SPIF is open to the public.

SPIF engages in commmunity outreach partnerships with the Ithaca Sciencenter's Space Science Summer Camp and the Paleontological Research Institution through Extraterrestrial Virtual Field Experiences.

Walk-ins are welcome at SPIF during normal hours, Monday through Friday from 10am to 3:30pm. Our staff is also involved in off-site presentations, exhibits, and events and occasionally SPIF may be closed temporarily during those times. We recommend checking the Events Calendar and using the Request a Visit form to plan your visit.
