Amazon's jungle-like biodomes, a workspace for the retailer's Seattle employees, will open to the general public two Saturdays a month, according to the facility's website.
Amazon is opening its Spheres a bit wider to the public.
The jungle-like corporate workspace at the heart of the retailer’s Seattle campus, open to employees since January, will get public visiting hours two Saturdays a month, according to the facility’s website.
Admission to the unguided tour is free, but visitors will need to reserve a time slot online. The first visitation day is April 21, and reservations are available 30 days in advance of each date, the company says. A fixed schedule of Saturdays hasn’t yet been set.
To get into the glass-domed spheres, which hold tens of thousands of plants, visitors previously needed to hop onto a broader Amazon headquarters tour. Those tours on Wednesdays were booked solid through June, which is as far into the future as Amazon was offering reservations.
