Short, Pleasurable Walk to the Lab

When you begin your tour of the lab, you'll most likely start at the ALS Offices. This is just a short, pleasurable three-minute walk over 0.1 miles of breathtakingly landscaped paths. To get to the ALS offices from our guest house, head southeast on Lawrence Road until you get to Cyclotron Road, where you'll turn left. From there, continue straight until you see the offices.

Three-Minute Walk to the Advanced Light Source

The Guest House is a short three-minute walk from the Advanced Light Source, a scientific user facility dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of society. The facility does this by sharing its world-class synchrotron light source capabilities to the scientific community, including visitors with appropriate passes who wish to learn more about this area of scientific research.
Getting to the Advanced Light Source from the Berkeley Lab Guest House is simple. Head southwest toward Lawrence Road and continue on this path for 0.1 miles until you reach The Advanced Light Source, housed in a circular building with a distinct red roof.

Lab Restrictions

Nobody is allowed into the lab unless they have clearance. You'll have to contact your host at the Lab or the ALS User Services Office to arrange for clearance when you reach the Blackberry Gate. Although educational tours for ages five and up are offered at the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, everyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Public and private tours are only for people aged 16 or up. You must present a photo ID to access any part of the university's lab facilities.

Things to Know Before You Go

Berkeley Lab tours are free to those who have received authorization. You can take photos anytime, but you shouldn't touch anything unless you've explicitly been told you can. Hours of operation vary, so check with your lab host about your tour's start and end times.
