Exhibitions and object loans

Bring CERN closer to you

Whether you are a museum exhibition designer, an institution looking for a temporary exhibition or a local event organiser, we are here to help you bring CERN closer to you. 

CERN has two travelling exhibitions – Accelerating Science and CERN in Images – which can be booked for temporary loan. We have also developed an exhibit – the LHC Interactive Tunnel (LIT) – which allow visitors to play with the particle acceleration and collision. Finally, we can share some of our iconic objects that made history in the field of particle physics. Follow the respective links to obtain further information about the technical requirements and booking conditions of our travelling exhibits.

While our travelling content requires prior booking, you can, at any time, download pictures, videos and animations, virtual reality material and posters that you can adapt to your specific venue or event. 

Finally, you can also make direct use of the resources available online

In any case, feel free to contact us for advice and further information.

CERN Accelerating Science

Accelerating Science

CERN's flagship travelling exhibition takes visitors on an extraordinary journey, starting with the Big Bang. As you progress round the exhibition, you will also realise to what extent fundamental research is a tremendous driving force behind innovation.

This series of posters is enriched with movies (TV sets provided) and objects. Different configurations are possible and can be adapted to the existing volumes.

LHC Interactive Tunnel Exhibit

By immersing the public in a fully interactive gaming experience, the LHC interactive tunnel exhibit manages to explain concepts like "the influence of Higgs Field on matter" and "particle acceleration and collision".
