Fermilab’s 50th anniversary celebration has lasted all year, and it will culminate on Sept. 23 with the largest public open house the lab has hosted in two decades. Registration is now open for this event, and you’re invited!
You’ll get a behind-the-scenes peek at the extraordinary science of Fermilab, and tour areas not typically open to the public.
The free Community Open House takes place from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23. This will be a rare opportunity to see the laboratory up close and tour areas not typically open to the public.
“Everyone is welcome to join us in celebrating 50 years of science,” Fermilab officials said in a news release.
“We 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.”
Examples include Fermilab’s giant Muon g-2 magnet, particle accelerators and experiments. You can visit the Lederman Science Education Center, see some of the facilities and watch live video casts with Fermilab partners in France, Chile and South Dakota. Have lunch, hike the lab’s restored tall-grass prairie, and say “hi” to Fermi’s 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.
