  • Definitely recommended for families with school-aged kids. A lot of hands on learning with cutting edge technology. They have an 8k large projection show, that includes a 3D portion with use of glasse...  more »
  • In the AEC, there is always something to see and be amazed. As one of the most advanced museums in Austria, there are always very interesting exhibitions and exhibits. Especially at the time of the Ars Electronica, the who is who of the scene is the Jack in your hand. Be sure to also visit deep space plan (huge 8 k projection room with partial 3D performances)

  • The Ars Electronica Center is the architectural expression of a place of research and discovery, experimentation and exploration, a place that brought the world of the future as your stage and that gathers and presents influences of different ways of thinking and seeing things. Visitors can find the Center on their own or seek guidance from the experts Infotraineres stationed throughout the exhibition.

  • Every time I visit Ars Electronica, I get excited about the innovation and technology that is displayed there. This time we enjoyed the virtual presentation of the universe, solar system and galaxies and we were blown away. It's children friendly, adult friendly and perfect for retired people, fun for all generations.
  • The museum is really interesting and futuristic. I would say that it is a must see and visit location in Linz. There is an Ultra IMAX experience included, that blows away everything you have experienced. There is a nice cafe/restaurant on the roof with a great view.
  • Must visit! It is a very interactive museum with a strong focus on consumer electronics & technology (e.g. 3D printer, VR Headsets, Music studio). The Deep space room is amazing! 3D projectors displaying stunning images on all the walls and the floor. Experience a tour around the universe in that room! Enjoy!
  • This is an awesome place. Need strong German skills to understand and participate in all activities. The deep space show is not to be missed
  • Very interesting museum for adults and kids. 3d movies including cartoons. Different virtual reality spaces and simulations. 3d designing for printing. Famous cities and interesting places panoramas. Sound games and many many more. Worth 1 day planning for visiting and it may be not enough :-)
