General information

In the Universe of Particles exhibition, explore the issues CERN's physicists are trying to solve: given that the entire universe is made of particles, where do they come from? Why do they behave in the way they do?

Discover the massive apparatus used by physicists at CERN and how the developed technologies impact your everyday life at the Microcosm exhibition. Interview engineers and physicists on their daily job. And if you have more time on site, follow the LHC circuit at ground level with the Passport to the Big Bang cycle path, to understand in situ this giant machine.

Guided tours available by reservation only.

 

Venue

27 metres high and 40 metres in diameter, it's about the size of the dome of Saint Peter's in Rome! The Globe of Science and Innovation is CERN's outreach tool for its work in the fields of science, particle physics, leading-edge technologies and their applications in everyday life.

The first floor of the Globe is a multi-purpose area for holding conferences, film showings, workshops, temporary exhibitions, press and VIP events and dinners. CERN proposes an annual program of free public events there.
