DZero Tour


The Dzero Tour is available the first Tuesday of the month at 1:30 PM. Tours include stops at the DZero assembly hall and control room (where the screens replay images captured during DZero detector operation). They culminate in the detector and its collision hall. In the assembly hall area there is a special explanatory display. Limited photography.

The minimum age for the tour is 14 years old. No exceptions. Non-heel closed-toe shoes are required. Visitors must be able to walk up and down several flights of stairs.

Due to the possibility of encountering residual magnetic fields slightly above the five gauss level, visitors with medical electronic devices (such as cardiac pacemakers) are not permitted to enter the DZero collision hall.

Reservations are required and space is limited. To register for this event, go to the Special Events Calendar or the Online Registration. Click the pencil icon next to the event. More information.
