  • The problem with a museum of modern innovation is that if you made it cutting edge in 2008 and never updated most of the exhibits and now it's 2017, your Museum is terrible. By definition. You're displaying technology that was old 5 years ago as if it's cutting edge. I'm sure it would've been mildly interesting in 2009, but really there is very little of interest here... Apart from the cloud artwork on the first floor and maybe the wax bodies exhibit when it's installed. The bathrooms are in the basement to the left as you face the stairs you can go back up - despite the WC symbols on every floor.
  • Best Museum I have been to in a long while. The deep space show is defiantly worth watching as well
  • Great displays of electronic interactions with our daily life, nice and well-trained educators. Worth the money. Book a tour - it is much better that way!
  • There were several interesting exhibitions, such as "Brain Lab". Some of the exhibitions did not work properly or at all.
  • The museum is very interacting, a great place for kids but as well for adults. Exhibitions about robotics and modern technology are mind blowing. Deep Space room is a must.
