CERN offers visitors the opportunity to explore at your own pace two permanent exhibitions: "The Universe of Particles" and "Microcosm".
Universe of Particles is the exhibition installed in the Globe of Science and Innovation. Dedicated to CERN main missions it allows to explore the world of particles by immersing the visitor in a unique and spectacular ambiance. The entire Universe is made up of particles. But where do they come from? What laws govern their behaviour? The purpose of the "Universe of particles" exhibition is for visitors to confront the great questions of contemporary physics, currently being explored by the CERN via the LHC and other accelerators.
Microcosm is next to CERN's reception. This exhibition offers a discovery of the CERN adventure. Discover the full scale and wonder of CERN’s monumental experiments. Find out what is happening at the Large Hadron Collider and meet the people who build and operate this extraordinary machine. Microcosm's exhibitions take visitors on a journey through CERN’s key installations. Follow the path of the particles from a bottle of Hydrogen, through the network of accelerators and on to collision inside vast experiments.
