“Great Architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Great for biking and hiking. The research facilities look like something out of a 60's sci-fi movie. Make sue to visit Wilson Hall for a good overview of the history of the Fermi Lab and current research projects.

“Suburban Science Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Amazing place to take kids and adults interested in learning about cutting edge science. Visit their website for special programs/ events/lectures/ films. Or, just drive around on the grounds -- believe it or not, there's a heard of buffalo on the property! Architecture of buildings feels like you are in a time warp. So cool!

A surprising find. A wonderful experience for both children and adults. Always a good idea to see a Tom Skilling presentation if you can.

“Fermi Labs a great place for tweens, teens and adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

The facility offers special educational programs for younger children that are really GREAT. Please visit their site and sign up to be on their mailing list. The education center is not as extensive as the one at Oak Ridge TN. but it is full of info. The special lectures and ask a scientist dates are fantastic. GO FIND OUT.
