Museum finder

CERN

Discover the largest particle physics laboratory in the World.

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. Interview engineers and physicists on their daily job.

And if you have more time on site, follow the LHC circuit at ground level to understand in situ this giant machine.

Guided tours available by reservation only.
