The Lane Medical Library offers monthly walking tours of Stanford University Medical Center's architecture. The tour traces the medical school's history from 1850s San Francisco to present-day Palo Alto, and highlights some of the artistic and design choices that have resulted in the school's current built environment. The tour is free and open to the public, but be sure to reserve your space in advance. The December tour is already full, but there is a tour scheduled once per month.
