Plate millesim 2022

A world-famous science centre that reveals the secrets of its activities. Everyone asks the question: how did the world begin? CERN was founded in 1954 and today has 20 member states working on this research. It is one of the largest scientific laboratories in the world. The special tools used are particle accelerators and detectors. In particular the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful accelerator ever built. Representing a 27-kilometre-long circle straddling the French-Swiss border, you won't be able to see it because it is located 100 metres underground. It is a unique tool for scientists from over 100 countries. The LHC will revolutionise our understanding of the world, from the infinitely small, inside atoms, to the infinitely large of the Universe.

Discover the fascinating world of the infinitely small and the infinitely large by exploring the spectacular new permanent exhibition "Universe of Particles" located in the Globe of Science and Innovation. Take advantage of your visit to also discover Microcosm, CERN's interactive museum very close to the reception. Completely revamped, the museum immerses you in simulations of particle collisions to help you understand the purpose and operation of the LHC. Interactive screens and experiments transport you into the skin of a physicist and the passion of an explorer.
