For Public and Community
We are opening up Science Saturdays on
February 4th, 2023.
Want to visit LIGO, Livingston Louisiana, one of only 3 gravitational wave interferometers to ever directly detect gravitational waves?
Come on our Science Saturdays, on the first Saturday of each month. You will need to book a time in advance. During Science Saturdays we offer tours as well as time to explore in our professionally curated exhibit hall that has around 50 interactive science exhibits. If however you have a rather large group (over 15), then we ask that you fill out a tour request form - which will be posted soon. We offer different experiences for different groups whether you're a traditional school group, a home school, a community organization (scouts, church group, or other interest group), or just an interested member of the public.
Why Go to LIGO?
To talk to a Scientist
To tour a Cutting Edge Research Laboratory
To experiment with the hands-on interactive science exhibits
To be INSPIRED by SCIENCE
Unfortunately we are very sensitive to vibrations, so prior to visiting you must first request a tour UNLESS you are coming on one of our Science Saturdays which occur the first Saturday of every month from 10 AM - 4 PM, with a temporary lunch closure from 12:45 PM -1:15 PM during which time we will clean exhibits.
