  • Very interesting set up, equipped like most museums with many interesting exhibits, a guided tour is recommended. On Sundays free of charge at 11:00 and 15:00. Here you can still very different approach the computer age and understand how a PC was born, early PCs and computers can also be admired. Be sure the explanations and the referral to decide where you would like to put his focus, because the individual exhibits and stations (partly to the try out) requires time. Man with public transport (underground railway stations: courtyard garden or Lennéstraße plus approx. 10 min walk or bus station plus approx. 10 min walk) you arrive, you can park in the vicinity of the Museum what aufgrd. but more a gambling is its central location and close to uni. There are rather recommended the parking garages (mark place garage) or to park on the Rhine.

  • A museum dedicated to mathematics promises itself to be interesting, both for those interested in the subject, simply as a curious, both for those who tend not to the digests. Housed in a Multistorey building with huge glass walls, the Arithmeum in Bonn has as its centrepiece the incredible number of machines historically used for calculations, some with artistic pretensions; Sometimes it is possible to test the operation using the supplied instructions. Of various machines, however, it is quite difficult to understand the use or function. More limited is the exhibition area dedicated to books on mathematics, it would be interesting to be able to see or maybe browse freely. Rather incongruous the exhibition of works of abstract art, which with the mathematics involved to a certain extent; I find their place didn't fail, rather, simple Visual reproductions of mathematical concepts (of geometric figures, but also of trivia related to mathematics). There are almost no references to the history of mathematics real-that is not reduced to the only calculation or the instruments used for the calculation itself-and the acquisition of various periods. A weak point is the information support provided in German and in English: in a city that gives itself airs of ex-cosmopolitan capital, and at no great distance from France and the Netherlands, maybe a little bit. Overall, an interesting Museum, but could be improved.

  • Impressive collection of old computing equipment, some you can try out yourself. Best pal, do so if you are in Bonn. Children find this great too.

  • A terrific collection of mechanical computing equipment. Plan on spending half a day, since there is so much to see and learn.
  • Very good collection of historical calculating devices. I would recommend that there should be more arithmetic activities for children.
  • Really interesting museum for calculating machines since Mesopotamia to chips
  • Great Collection.
  • In addition to exhibition exhibits, there are amazing geometric pictures on the wall and occasional furniture to the be hats and resting.
