The two-hour tour includes a hands-on demonstration of the institute’s searchable repository of nearly 52,000 video testimonies; a preview of IWitness, an award-winning educational tool that lets teachers and students create testimony based projects; and a visit to the state-of the-art technology facility where testimonies are digitally restored and preserved.


Parking: It is recommended that guests enter USC via Gate Entrance 4 off of Jefferson Boulevard (across the street from the Shrine Auditorium; cross street Royal Street) and park in structure D (PSD). Please note that there is a $10 parking fee for all USC parking structures.
