The CMS Collaboration at CERN is a global scientific endeavour that is pushing the boundaries of fundamental research. CMS Virtual Visits offer students, teachers and the general public a unique opportunity to explore the experimental site of the CMS detector. The tours are guided by CMS scientists, who will explain the physics and technology behind the experiment and answer questions from the remote visitors.

With scientists from around 80 countries in our collaboration, we are doing our best to provide tours in your native language.
