Matière Premiere - Travelling Exhibition

You, the people you love and everything around you are made from particles that originated at the very beginning of the universe!

Welcome to the website for CERN’s travelling exhibition, funded by the Dudley Wright Foundation.

Matière Premiere is for young people and the not so young - anyone who is curious about the origins of our universe, the nature of the particles we are all made from, and the power of fundamental science.

Experience the ‘Big Bang’, investigate the building blocks of life, grapple with the mysteries of the universe, explore the world’s largest scientific experiment, and discover how fundamental science has changed the world as we know it.
