    The price-quality ratio, and is a great place. The entrance fee was included in the 3D flick, which maybe was a little too long (40 min). Different tests, which was actually a large scale were interesting across all (2 adults and three children, 8-17 (v)), the graphics were, indeed, old fashioned some of the equipment and this touch screen box, became a repeated instinctively klikattua display box, until you realized ... the instructions a little incomplete or difficult in many ways. Annoyed, too, that many of the device was broken. All in all, however, the recommended target, perhaps not quite suitable for young children, but school-aged (literate) is already a lot of things.

    Your country can wear easily four hours. The most I was inspired to compare the performance of the tests, the men and women on average. The tests, it was possible to run in four different languages. Tasks. the identification of the assessment distance, navigating the scents, colors, and expressions. The task then was to print a report with its own results are. Another favorite was a 3D-movie cat animals, but much more interesting Information from the ground was found. I highly recommend!

    Amazing place! If you are in the region, book a few hours of your day to visit. Prices are at highest around 10 (per adult). The estimate time the staff suggests for exploring the who center is 4 hours ... With a friend we took 6 hours (with a 30 minute 3D movie screening included). Great experience!
