One of the world's premier laboratories is just outside of the Chicago area, and is inviting the public in for a look. Argonne National Laboratory is an outgrowth of the WWII Manhattan Project. The initial development of nuclear energy, and nuclear weaponry, got it's start at what was then called the University of Chicago Metallurgical Laboratory. Chicago was where the first ever nuclear reactor was built, and where Enrico Fermi and his team operated.
Argonne has the Advanced Photon source, a nuclear accelerator used to feed what is in essence an X-ray laser. They have the Atlas machine - a sort of an atom smasher and atom accumulator. Then there are the electron microscopes, the nanoscience center and the Wakefield Accelerator. These will all be open to the public.
