COLLIDER at ArtScience Museum - Peering inside the LHC

Collider, an exhibition on the Large Hadron Collider, is now showing at the ArtScience Museum.

Known as the ‘World’s Greatest Experiment’, Collider brings you through the world of experimental particle physics. If you’ve read Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons (or the film adaptation), you would know about CERN and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Now this is your chance to see up-close – the place and people, science and technology – behind the god particle.

COLLIDER at ArtScience Museum - Large Hadron Collider Tunnel

No, you won’t get to walk through the massive 27-km long LHC tunnel. It’s just a few metres, but there are cool exhibits to see.

COLLIDER at ArtScience Museum - Discovery, the future and next challenges

The journey through the LHC concludes with a look in the future, as well as an installation called The Gift of Mass.

Activity zone after COLLIDER and NOBEL PRIZE exhibition

Enjoy some activities at the Collision Space after the exhibition, or you can proceed to the adjacent The Nobel Prize exhibition (though you’d be walking backwards).

The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World

ArtScience Museum - The Nobel Prize: Ideas Changing the World / Alfred Nobel's decree

Recognising achievements in the fields of physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, peace, and economic sciences, the Nobel Prize is one of the world’s most famous awards. This exhibition, which is free, explores the many aspects of the award – from Nobel’s will – to the many developments around the world that have changed the way we live.
