Beginning in April, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park will offer free public tours, which last approximately 90 minutes and include a visit to the lab’s two-mile-long linear accelerator, now driving the world’s brightest X-ray source.
Tours are offered twice a month, by registration only, which opens on the last Friday of the previous month. Registration is available only online; no phone calls or email requests. The two April dates are the 15th and 29th.
All public tours meet in the SLAC Orientation Theater (Room 1010), Building 53, at 1:15 pm. Closed-toed shoes are required.
Tours are open to all visitors 12 years of age and above. Children 12-17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
