On the third Saturday of every month from 1 PM - 5 PM visitors are welcome to drop in and experience the LIGO Science Education Center's Science Saturdays. These events are FREE. We offer tours of the control room (weather permitting), lobby activities, and approximately 50 interactive science exhibits. We welcome individuals and small groups. If your group is greater than 15 people, then we ask that you let us know in advance by filling out a public tour request form.
Tours are typically given every 30 minutes.
Last tour of the day is at 4:00.
The exhibit hall is open 1 PM - 5 PM.
Each Science Saturday focuses on a specific science topic, and activities in the lobby focus on that topic.
