  • What fun we had to visit the Museum with our 5 children and 9 years. the museum itself is not very big, but there are many things that we can touch and try to experience unlike most museums. the staff is very friendly. the first floor dedicated to children is only open to the public during the weekend we stayed on Tuesday and with the lift arrived on the first floor where an employee tells us that the plan is reserved for school groups but having children allowed us to visit and experience too. each paino there is very knowledgable and helpful staff that will tell you how to better interact with the exhibits. the staff speaks only German and English, except for one girl in the area dedicated to Italian-speaking orthoptics. Personally I could experience writing through the only eye movement. very interessante.il price 19 € for 2 adults and 2 children. on Monday, the Museum is closed

  • This is a trip everyone should make. We thought we can speed run the exhibitions in two hours but it really took us 3 h to go through it. The level of interaction between you and exponates is insane. ...  more »
  • The choice of dishes is quite low, but it all tasted the food, which were very good! Operation likely very attentive and friendly and the views of the Danube and old town: great!

  • 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!
