The guided tour at Fermilab begins in Wilson Hall and consists of a video presentation followed by an opportunity to view the Laboratory from the 15th floor windows and to visit the various displays located there. The tour then moves to the Linear Accelerator Building where visitors have the opportunity to see the Cockcroft-Walton, the components in the linear accelerator gallery and the Main Control Room.
