Continuing a summer tradition, The Hormel Institute will offer a free open house to the public from 4 to 6 p.m. the last Thursday of every month this summer.

Visitors will learn about The Hormel Institute’s history and latest developments. Other aspects of the tour include a 3-D imaging demonstration and viewing of IBM supercomputers.

The Institute has plans for a $27 million expansion in 2014, which will add more laboratories and space to the building and is estimated to create 125 jobs.
