Tour leaves from Ramsey Auditorium Foyer

Registration is not required for this tour, tickets will be available for pick up on a first come, first served basis the day of the Open House.

Please note: This tour is for ages 10 & up and requires an extensive amount of walking. Tour of g-2 dependent on the weather. Closed toe shoes are required!

This tour begins where Fermilab's protons begin, and follows them through the first half of the Linear Accelerator (Linac). You will see a mockup of the Main Injector and the Main Control Room. From the Linac, walk to the MC-1 building to see the 50 foot diameter superconducting muon storage ring where scientists will accelerate a beam of muons (heavier cousins of the electron) to discover more about the particles that make up our universe.


Driving Tour
