Uranus - Missions to Uranus

The only spacecraft to ever visit Uranus is the Voyager 2 probe. The Voyager 2 probe was launched on August 20, 1977 and reached Uranus on January 24, 1986. The Voyager 2 discovered additional moons of Uranus and while the rings of Uranus were discovered on Earth, the probe did capture some nice images of these very faint rings.

In addition, you may want to check out AeroSpaceGuide. This site has some interesting facts as well as mission summaries.

There are no further plans to send a probe to Uranus.
