Barry Goldwater Visitor Center.

The Barry Goldwater Visitor Center is open daily from 9am to 5pm.

Note: During Falcon Football season, the Visitor Center is closed for home games on September 4, September 18, September 25, October 9, October 23 and November 26.

Our 35,000 square-foot facility offers a glimpse into the U.S. Air Force Academy legacy and daily cadet life through a variety of presentations and exhibits. The visitor center includes a small theater, gift shop, bathrooms and snack bar for our guests.

Disabled Access As a courtesy to visitors, wheelchairs are provided for use within the Visitor Center. However, they cannot be taken out of the facility.

Nature walk Take advantage of the nature trail (approximately 1/3 mile) from the Visitor Center to the Cadet Chapel, Honor Court and cadet area viewing locations. The trail is a paved, yet strenuous walk with a variety of hills with a steep grade in some areas. There are plenty of places along the way to rest and take in the magnificent vistas of the area.
