DISTINCTIVE VOICES AT THE JONSSON CENTER


The J. Erik Jonsson Center of the National Academy of Sciences

_____ ___

The J. Erik Jonsson Center, located on Cape Cod in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, is a conference facility that has for many years, served as a meeting center for the National Academy of Sciences. Originally a private summer residence and purchased by the Academy in 1975, the Center now welcomes a variety of scientific, educational, and corporate meeting groups. The property boasts magnificent views of Quissett Harbor and Buzzards Bay and can accommodate groups ranging in size from 5 to 80. Leisure activities abound with boating, bicycling, swimming, and shopping being the most popular. The ferries to the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are located just minutes away. The Center maintains a shuttle service providing transportation to local hotels, restaurants, and attractions at no charge. The Jonsson Center is well equipped with computers, audio-visual equipment, and office supplies to ensure the requirements of each group are met. Staff members are readily available to answer questions and assist where needed. Meeting rooms are designed for optimal comfort and efficiency without sacrificing the relaxed feel of a Cape Cod style retreat.
