  • Always worth a visit. Interesting for young and old. We were there at least 10 times. And this time, it was certainly not our last visit.

  • Come to this Museum for half an hour before closing and very sorry about that. Here you can spend an entire day! One virtual tour into space which is worth. It's not just a three-de cinema, this is a real dive.

  • מקום נחמד ולא יותר. אם יש זמן לשרוף אז אפשר ללכת. יש שם את כל החידושים של הגאדג׳טים. נחמד לביקור של כשעה

  • 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!
