Each week, the Geocaching HQ Visitor Center is open to visitors, Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. - 5:00 P.M. Read about options to visit below.

We are closed Saturday, Sunday, U.S. holidays, and very rarely for private events. We strive to list all office closures below but as you know sometimes things happen. If we have to close the office unexpectedly, we will post a note on the door.

HQ CACHE VISITS AUGUST 13 - 24 and SEPTEMBER 24 to October 5

TICKETS ARE REQUIRED TO VISIT

TO REGISTER FOR TICKETS, CLICK A DATE ON THE CALENDAR TO THE RIGHT OR REGISTER FOR TICKETS HERE!

Geocaching HQ is excited that many people want to log the Geocaching Headquarters GCK25B Cache around the Going APE Mega (GC7HJBN) and Geocoinfest (GC7CX8F). To help ensure a favorite-point-worthy experience for all visitors we will have a ticketing system during this busy time.

The HQ cache lives in our Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is a small space that accommodates up to 25 people at a time. Please reserve a ticket for your opportunity to enter our Visitor Center and log the cache. Please note that this space is also the entrance to the Geocaching HQ offices and this visit does not include an office tour. As a working office, we are not able to support office tours.

  • Find the HQ cache and sign the logbook

  • Capture the moment in our photo booth

  • Learn about the HQ GeoTour and passport

During these dates, all members of your group must have a ticket - including kids. Only 25 people are allowed in our Visitor Center at a time (including staff) and we must enforce this limit for safety reasons. If you do not have a ticket, you are welcome to wait in line for possible openings, but waiting in line will not guarantee a visit to the HQ cache. The waiting line will be first come, first served, as space is available. We REALLY recommend getting a ticket!
