Photo - Eyes on the UniverseCanada House is delighted to welcome New Eyes on the Universe to the Canada Gallery. The new exhibit tells the story of how Nobel Prize winning results from Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) and the experiments currently underway at SNOLAB are providing new insights and pushing frontiers in particle astrophysics.
"We are very pleased to have this opportunity to present our science and technology to the general public in a prestigious location on Trafalgar Square in London,” said Dr. Art McDonald, former director of the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, 2015 Nobel Laureate in Physics.

The informative exhibition animates the science of SNO and of SNOLAB that is being conducted in the two kilometre-deep underground research facility in Sudbury, Ontario.
Visitors to the exhibition will experience a virtual tour of SNOLAB, artifacts of unique experiment components, spectacular imagery and video kiosks, and a model of the original neutrino detector.

About Science North

Science North is Northern Ontario’s most popular tourist attraction and an educational resource for children and adults across the province.

Science North includes a science centre, IMAX® theatre, digital planetarium, butterfly gallery, special exhibits hall, and Dynamic Earth – Home of the Big Nickel, a separate science centre focused on mining and earth sciences.


SNOLAB is an underground science laboratory specializing in neutrino and dark matter physics. Located 2 km below the surface in the Vale Creighton Mine located in Sudbury Ontario Canada, SNOLAB is an expansion of the existing facilities constructed for the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) solar neutrino experiment.

The Canada Gallery's ongoing programme is generously supported by the Dahdaleh Foundation, chaired by Victor Phillip Dahdaleh.

This project is a collaboration with Science North, SNOLAB, the City of Sudbury and the Canadian High Commission.
