Shedd Aquarium


Kirk Rd. at Pine St., Batavia, IL 60510


Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to answer fundamental questions and enhance our understanding of everything we see around us.

Whether you're interested in science or just fishing in the ponds near the bison herd on over 6,000 acres of natural areas, you're welcome at Fermilab. Take a self-guided tour of the laboratory, the Art Gallery and science and educational displays. View the grounds from the 15th floor observation area. Visitors may also visit the Lederman Science Center. Fermilab's Arts & Lectures series hosts speakers and performances from around the world year-round in the Ramsey Auditorium. Groups are welcome by appointment.
