ATLAS Visits


To schedule an onsite visit to the ATLAS experiment, please contact the CERN Visits Service.

The ATLAS Visitor Center has a permanent exhibit with interactive screens outside the Control Room and a 3D movie which explains how the detector works and why the collaboration pursues its quest for fundamental knowledge. CERN also has two permanent exhibitions Universe of Particles and Microcosm that provide unique experiences in understanding the secrets of matter and exploring the mysteries in our universe.

ATLAS Virtual Visits


An ATLAS Virtual Visit connects a classroom, exhibition or other public venues with scientists at the experiment using web-based video conferencing. It is a chance for you to have a conversation with the scientists working on ATLAS.

Click on the button below to schedule a Virtual Visit. We bring you into our control room or down to the detector itself, depending on where the action is. You can view a list of past visits, which include audiences from around the world. We hope you too will join us soon.
