In 1917, the Nobel Prize winner Ernest Rutherford became the first person to create an artificial nuclear reaction. To mark the centenary and for the first time, Rutherford’s private research room at the University has been opened for a special exhibition.
Visitors will be guided around some of the most important scientific sites of discovery at the University before entering the building in which Ernest Rutherford and his colleagues began the field of atomic physics. Inside the research room, you’ll be able to find out about Rutherford’s life and pioneering work and also discover the stories of other famous physicists who worked in the building.
Visitors will receive a complimentary booklet about the University’s history.
The exhibition is open by pre-booked guided tour only.
