(available as of October 2023, groups bookings are opened)

[Back to group bookings]

Join us to explore the Universe at CERN.  With hands-on experiments, real scientific objects, immersive environments and interactivity, the exhibitions at Science Gateway will bring CERN to life.

Try your hand accelerating particles, explore how CERN’s giant experiments reveal the mysteries of matter, play proton football and discover the many challenges of designing, building and operating the world's largest particle accelerator.

Take a trip through 13.8 billion years of Universe to experience the voyage your particles took on their way to becoming you. And visit our brand new Quantum World to discover the weird and wonderful way the Universe works at the smallest of scales.

An arts space on the theme of Exploring the Unknown, hosts several new contemporary artworks inspired by the artists’ interactions with CERN scientists. 

The exhibitions contain experiments designed for ages 8 and up, audio-descriptions and tactile content, screen text in 5 languages (French, English, German, Italian and Spanish), video subtitling. Our exhibitions are pushchair and wheelchair accessible.  For more information about accessibility, or with any specific accessibility request, please get in touch.

We recommend you allow 1.5 - 2 hours for your visit.
