  1. Many people already know that Fermilab is open to visitors every day of the year. Guests can take a free guided tour on Wednesdays at 10am, or tour the 15th floor and art gallery at their own pace. The prairie trails are open for hiking, and the bison are always out in the field waiting to make friends.
  2. Science wins the day! Open house at Fermilab. Good time.

  3. So imagine our surprise when 10,000 people showed up in blazing heat to see extra science going on behind the scenes! On Sept. 23, visitors got to tour muon and neutrino experiments, part of the accelerator complex, technical areas where we develop and test magnets and accelerator components, and lab space where we work on particle astrophysics and other detector technology.
  4. Fermilab employees and friends donned orange shirts and hats and spent the day sharing Fermilab science with our guests.
  5. Almost party time! #fermilabs50th

  9. Some went rogue and wore their yellow "Ask-A-Scientist" shirts instead.
  10. Our director, Nigel Lockyer, was on hand all day to answer questions and hang out with guests.
  11. Wilson Hall was incredibly popular. Remember - you can visit this space any day!
