1 The DZero tour lasts a lot longer than the other tours. Expect to be back at Wilson Hall by about 12:30 PM.

All lectures begin promptly at 9:00 AM.  We recommend you arrive at Fermilab no later than 8:45 AM.

The lectures are two hours, with a 10-minute break at about 10:00.  The tours start at 11:00; you should be back at Wilson Hall by 12:00, except for the DZero tours.

If you are being picked up by car after the tours, please ask the driver not to pull up in directly in front of Wilson Hall – the tour buses need this space.
