Onondaga Lake Visitors Center

“Our trip to the Onondaga Lake Visitors Center brought research to life. These authentic learning experiences, coupled with classroom instruction, enabled the students to make connections between the history of the lake and the community. They developed wonderful plans for the lake’s future and understand the importance of citizenship and community involvement.”

The Central New York community has played a key role in the efforts to clean up Onondaga Lake. The Onondaga Lake Visitors Center was designed and built by Honeywell to provide the public with access to the significant work taking place by hundreds of scientists, engineers, and skilled craft laborers from this region.

The Onondaga Lake Visitors Center is adjacent to I-690 along the southwest shoreline of Onondaga Lake.

Public open houses are held on Friday from 12-4:30 p.m. during the dredging season, from mid-April to mid-November.

Reservations are required at 315-552-9751. There is no fee to visit the Center. To book a group tour, organizations should submit the form below.

TO ACCESS THE VISITORS CENTER: From Points West: Take I-690 East to Exit 7, turn left onto State Fair Boulevard, take the first left passing under I-690, drive straight toward the lake and follow signs to the Onondaga Lake Visitors Center. From Points East: Take I-690 West to Exit 7, turn right at the off ramp and follow signs to the Onondaga Lake Visitors Center.
