Public tours are not currently being scheduled for 2020-21 due to COVID -19. Please pay attention to our website for updates.
Luckily, as a member of the general public, we have a community outreach experience designed just for you - our Science Saturdays! With our Science Saturdays you don't even need to book a tour. However, if you have a group of more than 15 people, then we will want you to fill out a tour form for your group. If you have a group size of less than 15 and you absolutely can not make it on a Science Saturday, then you'll need to fill out a form as well. Please note that we have limited availability of people to provide you with tours, so we can't guarantee you that we can honor your request - but we'll try. Time: Tours typically take 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Cost: There is no cost (yes the tours are free) Lunches: We have no facilities to buy lunches on-site, but if you are coming around lunch time, you are welcome to bring your lunch and eat it outside at our pavilion. REQUIREMENTS: Vehicles MUST REMAIN ON SITE DURING THE TOUR. LIGO Livingston is in a remote location & we are sensitive to vibrations, therefore for the safety of the visitors and in order to keep LIGO's instrument working well, visitors are not allowed to be dropped off for a tour.
