This world-famous scientific centre delivers the secrets of its activities. Everyone asks the question one day: how did the world start? The CERN founded in 1954, now counts 20 member states that work for this research. It is one of the largest scientific laboratories in the world. The specific tools used are particle accelerators and detectors, especially the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful accelerator ever built. Representing a circle of 27 kilometers long straddling the French-Swiss border, it is not visible because it is located 100 meters underground. It is a unique tool for scientists from over 100 countries. The LHC will revolutionize our understanding of the world, from the infinitely small  inside the atoms to the infinitely large Universe. Come and explore this unique laboratory in the world from the Globe of Science and Innovation, emblematic building for the Organization.

Discover the fascinating world of the infinitely small and infinitely large by exploring the new and very spectacular permanent exhibition «Particle universe» located in the Globe of Science and Innovation. Enjoy your visit to discover Microcosm, the interactive CERN museum very close to the reception. The completely rebuffed museum plunges you into simulations of particle collisions to understand the objective and operation of the LHC. Interactive screens, experiments turn you into a physicist and make you feel the passion of a explorer.

Free visits of the Laboratory organized from Monday to Saturday, meeting physicists and their tools. Booking on the website and by telephone compulsory 15 days to 3 days before the visit. A physicist guide takes you on the fascinating path of our universe and helps you understand it with very sophisticated tools. (http://outreach.web.cern.ch/outreach/FR/index.html)
