Guided tour will be approximately 45 minutes. Advance registration is required. This event is free of charge.
Visitors will be required to sign in with the front desk with a photo ID to receive an identification sticker. Visitors will then take the elevators to the 3rd floor, and the Video Data Bank offices are directly outside the elevators.
