27 metres high and 40 metres in diameter, it's about the size of the dome of Saint Peter's in Rome! A unique visual landmark by day and by night, the Globe of Science and Innovation is a symbol of Planet Earth. It is CERN's new outreach tool for its work in the fields of science, particle physics, leading-edge technologies and their applications in everyday life.

On the ground floor of the Globe, the « Universe of Particules » exhibition takes the visitor on a journey deep into the world of particles and back to the Big Bang.

Due to big maintenance work on the Globe , Universe of Particles exhibition will be closed from Monday 4 May 2015 and will reopen April 2016.
