Have you ever wanted to venture behind the gates of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL)? The Public Affairs Office offers site tours that provide a glimpse into the world-class research programs and facilities at LLNL.

Tours are available Friday mornings from 8:15 to noon and are perfect for local residents, family members and friends visiting the area, or if you are a Lab employee but are unfamiliar with all the Lab has to offer. See the tour flier.

Tour stops may include: the National Ignition Facility, the world’s largest and most energetic laser; the National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center, the national center for mapping and predicting potential spread of hazardous materials in the atmosphere; and the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry, a signature research facility used for environmental and biomedical research, nuclear physics, materials characterization and national security applications.

Tours start and conclude at the Laboratory’s Discovery Center off Greenville Road in Livermore and involve extensive walking and standing. See the map for directions to the Discovery Center.

Tour participants must be at least 18 years old, and the maximum number of visitors per tour is 14.

Advance registration is required; space is limited. To join a tour or for more information, please send an email inquiry to tours [at] You will be sent instructions on how to sign up.
