A Day at CERN, Geneva
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers use the world's largest and most complex instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – the fundamental particles. The particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light.
A group guided tour of CERN lasts about 3 hours and comprises an introduction followed by a film and visits to experimental areas and/or to an accelerator. All tours are guided by volunteer staff members of CERN.
CERN's Two Permanent Exhibitions are as follows:
Universe of Particles: Dedicated to CERN’s main missions, this exhibition allows you to confront the great questions of contemporary physics, currently being explore by the CERN via the Large hydrogen Collider and others.
Microcosm: In this exhibition you will explore the mysteries of the universe and discover the massive apparatus used by physicists, the accelerators and detectors, and see how each part works!
