Hadron Collider: step inside the world's greatest experiment
Venue Queensland Museum
Dates From 9 Dec 2016 to 25 Apr 2017

Hadron Collider: step inside the world’s greatest experiment, the renowned Large Hadron Collider Exhibition from the Science Museum, London is coming to Brisbane in December 2016 and celebrates the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.

The award winning, immersive exhibition recreates the largest scientific experiment ever constructed. Buried deep under the border between Switzerland and France, CERN’s Large Hadron Collider is the work of 10,000 men and women from across the globe, united in their quest to uncover the fundamental building blocks of our universe.

It was at the Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland in 2012 that the Higgs boson, was discovered, capturing the public’s imagination like few other scientific endeavours of the past 50 years.

Hadron Collider is a timed ticketed experience.
  Entry times commence at 9.40am daily, then then at 20 minute intervals through to 4pm.

You must arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled ticket time.  For example if your ticket time is 10am you need to arrive at the museum no later than 9.50am.

Why is entry timed?
Exhibition entry is timed so that we can manage the flow of visitors through the 15 minute video screening at the beginning of the exhibition and to ensure the exhibition doesn’t get too crowded. Once inside, you are welcome to stay as long as you like until museum closing at 5pm daily.  Please note there are no pass outs from the exhibition.
