I am hoping to visit CERN at some point, but the underground areas are closed off at the moment. So just wondering if anyone knows when it's open to the public again
Thanks :)

I guess if anyone knows, it should be them:

Not until the upgrade in 10 years or so, probably.

Does anyone know when the LHC will be open to the public again?
Will the visitors get free souvenir hadrons?

Again? I doubt very much that the LHC tunnel was ever open to the general public. There are electrical hazards, cryogenic hazards, oxygen deficiency hazards and now that the machine has been operating, radiation hazards. As if that weren't enough, yhere are areas where millions of dollars of damage could be caused by a careless visitor.

Don't forget about all the blackholes down there now that the LHC has been running.
If a tourist happened to fall into one of those, the legal problems would be phenomenal! Of course, since it's a black hole, there wouldn't be any evidence left of the tourist falling in there. (And there are many other black holes for any witnesses... Man, those guys at CERN are in deep.)

If you type 342292850771 in the keypad, it's open to the public right now

Amen, and then some, being anal retentive about everything technical with inner workings of the LHC would be grossly "understating" the level of attention to detail required to keep it running safe... I was just having a bit of fun with v_50, he is a pithy guy. Up to now have never seen him make a mistake with spelling. We should cut him some slack, I worked 52 hours last week, did little posting on PF because I was so fried learning a new intense skill at work. Rhody...
