What are we made of? How did the universe begin? What secrets do the smallest, most elemental particles of matter hold, and how can they help us understand the intricacies of space and time? Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to answer these and other fundamental questions and enhance our understanding of everything we see around us. As the United States' premier particle physics laboratory—and its only publicly accessible Dept. of Energy site—Fermilab does science that matters. Whether you're interested in the science conducted here or just come to fish in our ponds, you're welcome at Fermilab. The laboratory is open to visitors every day of the week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from November to March and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. the rest of the year. Public tours available every Monday at 1pm, and group tours are welcome by appointment. The Lederman Science Center is open to the public and offers hands-on science exhibits for students of all ages. Enjoy global culture and perspective at Fermilab's Arts & Lecture Series, with many events occurring either at Fermilab's on-site art gallery or in the spacious, architecturally significant Ramsey Auditorium at Wilson Hall.
