  • One of the recommended sites in Linz. Many interesting things to see and learn, but they almost all require someone from the museum to guide you through, explain and show what it does. Nice robots, 3D...  more »
  • I was there for the first time and got there about 2 1 / 2 h stopped. The staff * inside are very friendly and helpful. Again and again

  • The whole building of glass, is all lit up at night. The colors change with a specific time and is an attraction on the banks of the Danube. Unfortunately when I had the willingness to meet internally was going on preparing for a festival in the city and the Museum was not open to the public.

  • 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!
