  • Although we didn't have enough time to see all of the exhibition, it was certainly a geeks paradise. 8K show was mindblowing. Highly reccomended, just make enough time (at least half a day).
  • If you are in Linz, visit the Ars Electronica. It's probably the most interesting place in the city. Museum for modern tech with seasonal topic changes.
  • Underwhelming collection. Most digital exhibits look like they're from late 90s. Though, Ars is a good place to visit during their annual Prix festival.
  • Really interesting gallery of new technology/media art and presentation. Highly recommended for visit. And Space 3D 8K video presentation amazing for get a little bit better imagination of distances around over Earth and Sun.
  • Extremely geeky - to the point that is makes you feel a little queazy inside. Don't forget to step outside for something natural if you end up spending the whole day in there!
