National Institute for Subatomic Physics

Come and see us

You are most welcome to visit Nikhef. On Friday afternoons we offer groups a varied programme in which the 'secrets' of (astro)particle physics are revealed in a down-to-earth manner! The programme is detailed at the bottom of the page.

On location
You can also request a lecture on location. Then Nikhef will visit you! Under Ask a physicist you can find further information and an application form.

Open Day
Each year in October, during the Month of Knowledge, the Open Day provides an outstanding opportunity to take a look inside Nikhef. During that month, all institutes at Science Park Amsterdam open their doors to the public and so there is plenty to see and do.

Requests from journalists and photographers will be considered upon submission.

Special requests to see more of certain parts of Nikhef can be discussed. Amsterdam Science Park can also be toured, with a visit to Nikhef forming part of the overall programme.

For further information please contact the Communications Department, telephone +31 20 592 5075.
