CERN, in Geneva, is the world’s largest particle physics research centre. CERN has recently brought into service the world’s most powerful accelerator, the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), which will provide new insights into the Universe and how it evolved. 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 : a journey to the Big Bang.

Just amazing, I wish I was smart enough to leave a review on how impressive this place truly is. The visual presentation overlaid on the old particle collider is brilliant.

Fascinating visit to the LHC easly accessible by tram from Geneva. It is free to visit. There are two permanent exhibitions, Microcosm which explains how the LHC works and Univerese of Particles in the Dome building opposite reception. However it is far more rewarding to...More

A very enjoyable free attraction right next to the tram stop. Futuristic interactive exhibits which give an insight into CERN and well set up. It is perhaps a little overbearing for the non-scientific and can therefore be over the top for non-technical or child visitors....More

Tour consists mostly of four short films and tour guide talking. Visited two locations at the complex about a quarter mile apart, so some walking involved. Our tour guide was a scientist at CERN and a university professor, so took very technical questions from the...More

Lots to see and do with plenty of practical hands on activities. Book (weeks/months) ahead for guided tours of CERN to see real particle accelerators actively used today.

When you will be there, you will understand how small we,human beings are, and how big is our universe.

A visit to CERN is mandatory for anyone who is passionate with science. It's breathtaking to see the place where the internet was born, and the greatest discoveries in particle physics happen. It has beautiful exhibitions and a guided tour is highly reccomended.

It's free to visit Cern. It's very interesting. Didn't take too long to go through the entire thing. I would recommend seeing it if you have the time.

It is exceptional that the LHC can be seen directly. When the LHC is operating humans must stay far away because radiation is too high nearby. I have visited the LHC in the tunnel during an open day week end a few years... More

Personally I would recommend 4-6 hours. Even just walking around the place in itself is a reward.
