Celebrating the Opening of the "Light & Matter" Exhibition

The new special exhibition "Light and Matter" is a wonderful joint effort by the Deutsches Museum and the Cluster of Excellence Munich Center for Quantum Science and Technology - our heartfelt thanks go to all those who have given us such outstanding and energetic support and made the creation of the exhibition possible!

We would like to celebrate its completion and opening of the exhibition in a relaxed setting with the scientists of the cluster and the team of the Deutsches Museum, this way bridging the two worlds. The celebration will include insight into the day to day work of researchers and museum employees, as well as a pub quiz, good food, and more.
