The tour bus will pick us up at the Shilo Inn at 1 p.m., where we will be transported to the Department of Energy Visitor Control Office for badging. 

Before the tour can start, visitors will need to show that they are US Citizens, 18 years or older. 

Please consult the Required Forms of Identification for Hanford Site Access which outlines the ID requirements each tour participant must bring to be issued a Hanford Site visitor badge. Please note that anyone without proper ID will be unable to participate in the tour. There are no exceptions. 

For any questions on the badging information, you may call the DOE Visitor Control Office at 509-376-3215.

Following the badging process, the bus will depart for the Hanford Site tour. The tour route will pass by various areas of the Hanford Site, including Hanford projects and operations supporting the site’s current environmental cleanup efforts. The bus will return us to the Shilo Inn at approximately 4:00 p.m.

If you have questions about the tour, please contact Karen Sinclair, Hanford Site Tour Coordinator, by email or at 509-376-2151.
