Chernobyl’s reactor 4 control room is now open for tourists. However, the area is still considered “highly radioactive” therefore you will be required to wear a protective suit, helmet, and gloves while inside.

Tour agencies confirmed that the control room is now open for guided walkthroughs following Ukranian President Vladimir Volydymyr’s July decision to proclaim the region an “official tourist attraction”. Following the announcement, HBO made a miniseries dubbed Chernobyl which made a huge spike in interest among potential tourists.

One thing to note is that after you enter the unit you must submit to two separate radiology tests to measure exposure to contaminants. Radiation in the control is measured to be about 40,000 times above normal (hence the reason for the protective gear).

Going into the control room you will notice items such as diagrams, aged wiring and other equipment that was used to monitor the reactor. The unit its self has been covered in a 32-ton arch dubbed the New Safe Confinement.

For those of you who don’t want to visit but are still curious I highly recommend the Chernobyl miniseries by HBO or you can watch this below video that shows you some of the area.
