Abstract: Almost 30 Isolated Neutron Stars (INSs) of different flavours have been identified at optical, ultraviolet, or infrared (UVOIR) wavelengths. Here, I present a short review of the historical background and describe the scientific impact of INS observations in the UVOIR. Then, I focus on UVOIR observations of rotation-powered pulsars, so far the most numerous class of INSs identified at these wavelengths, and their observational properties. Finally, I present the results of new UVOIR observations and an update of the follow-ups of γ-ray pulsars detected by Fermi.
