Date: March 23-July 23, 2017

The goal of the exhibition is to inspire a sense of wonder and curiosity about the origin of the Universe and the basic constituents of matter. It shows how experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN will unravel some of the mysteries of the Universe, and it displays the connection between fundamental research in the past with technologies of the present. The exhibition consists of the 

  • entrance tunnel, taking the visitor back to the time of the Big Bang;
  • Big Bang theatre, narrating the history of the Universe;
  • particle zone, displaying the basic structure of matter;
  • mystery room, talking about the mysteries of matter and the Universe;
  • CERN research area, showing how research at the LHC is done;
  • display ‘our world is built on basic research’, linking basic research to our daily life.

Five short tunnel sections (‘transfer pods’) join together the ve main zones, transporting the visitors from one theme to the next. The exterior walls feature decorative imagery, the exhibition branding and the exhibition title. The panel texts are written in the host country’s primary language and in English. A significant part of the exhibition consists of interactive media (touch panels and games) that are particularly attractive to a younger audience. The level of the exhibition is suitable for visitors from age 12 and older.
