Fermilab Community Open House

A rare opportunity to see the laboratory up close and tour areas not typically open to the public

You are invited to Fermilab’s biggest Open House in decades!

Fermilab will host tours, demos and hands-on activities for the whole family — there’s a little something for everyone of all ages to do or see. Visit the giant Muon g-2 magnet and learn all about Fermilab’s particle accelerators and experiments. Visit the Lederman Science Education Center, see some of its facilities, and watch live video casts with its partners in France, Chile and South Dakota. Have lunch, hike the lab’s restored tall-grass prairie, and say “hi” to its herd of bison. Maybe even take in Mr. Freeze’s popular cryogenic show!

Enter the Open House from the east via Batavia Road or from the west via Wilson Street. After parking, you will take a short orientation tour, after which you can decide what sites you’d like to see.
