Switzerland – CERN

Whilst in Geneva I was able to visit the permanent exhibitions at CERN, The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Conseil Europeen pour la Recherche Nucleaire). As well as being very informative the exhibitions are stylish and captivate their audience. ‘Universe of Particles’ is in the Globe of Science and Innovation, a largely wooden dome which is an emblem of CERN. ‘Microcosm’ across the road shows the work and history of CERN and includes a garden exhibiting old equipment as sculptures. It was uplifting to see the international co-operation involved.
