See the labs and tanks where people and pets are frozen in the hope they will be brought back to life in the future. The original "cryonaut," frozen in 1967, is still here.

The tour was crazy and intriguing at the same time. Both pictures and questions were allowed and encouraged. Although the Alcor webpage offered tours only twice a week, we called first. The Alcor team seemed happy to give tours upon request.
