Due to COVID-19, SLAC has cancelled all public tours until further notice out of concern for the health, safety and well-being of our community and staff.
Please check this website for the latest updates on the tour program.
SLAC offers free public tours twice a month.
Registration opens on the last Friday of the previous month at 9 a.m. Our Web-based tour registration is available online only. No phone calls or email requests will be taken for public tour registration. Tours are popular and spaces fill up quickly; we recommend registering as early as possible.
Tickets are non-transferable.
SLAC tours are open to all visitors 12 years of age and above. Children 12-18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult; tickets are required for both the minor and the escorting adult.
All public tours meet in the SLAC Orientation Theater, Room 1010, Building 53. The 1:00pm tour meets at 12:45pm, and the 2:30pm tour meets at 2:15pm. Each tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and includes a visit to the lab's 2-mile-long linear accelerator.
Closed-toe shoes are required.
We look forward to hosting you at SLAC!
