Visit the Lab for family fun, dazzling light, exploring the ultra small, and atom-smashing fun
This summer, Brookhaven Lab invites you to have a new Summer Sundays experience! Explore world-class facilities, meet scientists, experience hands-on discovery, and enjoy a different science show each week.
On the opening Sunday, July 16, the Lab will be highlighting its 70 years of discovery and a century of service commemorating Camp Upton, the U.S. Army camp formerly located on the Lab site. Check out photos and memorabilia about the Lab site’s history – including artifacts from Camp Upton-hear special history talks, and take a historic bus tour of the Lab site. The following weeks will each feature a different Lab science facility.
Summer Sundays visits are free, handicapped accessible, with no reservations needed. The Lab’s cafeteria in Berkner Hall will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The main gate will be open to incoming Summer Sunday visitors from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. All activities are on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors 16 and older must bring a photo ID.
