Touring MIT's Nuclear Reactor Lab is a unique experience that allows participants to learn more about nuclear science and engineering, radiation facts and safety, the types of research conducted at the lab, how the facility is operated, and more, all while viewing the facility from the inside (including the control room)! Available free to the MIT community, school groups, non-profit educational organizations, nuclear industry professionals, and collaborators, we tailor our tours based on your interests.
Tours are conducted on weekdays for groups of up to 30 participants and last 60 to 90 minutes in duration. We also offer an optional hour-long classroom presentation for groups of 10 or more prior to the start of the tour.
Interested in touring our facility? Fill out our Tour Request Form and send it to our outreach coordinator, Taylor Tracy, at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started. All tours must be scheduled in advance and are not available on a drop-in basis. Please note that our spring quarterly scheduled maintenance period will be from March 31st to April 20th, during which time we will be unable to provide tours of the facility.
Have more than 30 people in your group? Send in a request and we’ll work with you to find additional activities on campus that the group can be split and rotated between.
