Museum at CHF

Have you ever wondered how plastics are made or where crayons get their colors? Do you want to find out how the DNA code was cracked or how we can measure oxygen on Mars? Explore with us at the Museum at CHF!

Chemistry is all around us: not just in the laboratory, but in the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the earth beneath our feet. Unlocking these secrets of nature—the hows and whys of chemical change—has preoccupied curious men and women for centuries. Our exhibits profile the amazing successes, astonishing failures, and strange surprises behind the discoveries that changed our world.

Journey through the weird and wonderful world of matter and materials, and discover the chemistry in your life! Plan your visit.
