Every February, the Magnet Lab invites the public to spend the day at this world-class research laboratory, and every February, they come by the thousands.

While we have loved hosting thousands of visitors of all ages at our lab each year at MagLab Open House, out of an abundance of caution and to protect our community from COVID-19, we have decided not to plan an in-person Open House 2021.

Our 2021 MagLab Open House will instead pivot to the online space to offer a collection of special MagLab video demonstrations, behind the scenes clips of the world's largest and highest-powered magnet lab and special scientist-hosted live activities for audiences of all ages. We'll be sharing a more detailed schedule soon, but mark your calendars for MagLab science fun throughout the last week of February and first week of March.

Subscribe to our email notification list for information about the awesome virtual options we will be putting together for science lovers of all ages.
