Campus tours are currently being redeveloped. Please check back soon for a schedule of availability. When restarted, free campus tours will last approximately one hour and depart from the CBL Visitor Center. Please arrive 15 minutes early for tours. Because this is a working lab, campus tours will not include access to our actual laboratories. Children must be age 12 and over and accompanied by a responsible adult. Some areas on the tours may not be handicap accessible as many of our campus building are historic structures. Call the CBL Visitor Center at (410) 326-7443 to confirm Campus Tour availability.
