LANSCE Visitor Center

Throughout the year, LANSCE hosts a variety of work-related visits. Many visitors request tours of the accelerator, instruments, and laboratories. These visitors may represent: academia, industry, national laboratories; and local, tribal, state, or the federal government. LANSCE also supports educational outreach tours.

Contact LANSCE Tours by email: if you would like to schedule a visit to LANSCE or arrange a tour. A very limited number of non work-related educational outreach tours can be accommodated for established organizations, like schools or universities, using employee volunteers. 

LANSCE is not open to the general public and all users are required to request and register prior to visiting LANSCE. All travel to and from LANSCE must be approved by the host.
