  • My 6 year old son found it amusing maximum. And to remove €16 each parents, for what you get nothing, is more like outrageously. All in all a handle in the bathroom, whose high point is the inedible Bistro.

  • We love the Odysseum and love to come here when it is out there again bad weather. There is much to discover and you can really spend a whole day without any problems. Only the entrance is a little steep I think and a little more for social weaker families should be adjusted so that also these children benefit from this institution can come.

  • Recommended! Really fun and educational. Children may everywhere sitting, nicely set up and not too big. The best age is 7-10 years. Unfortunately not centrally located.

  • Very nice place to explain kids about science and instill interest in how things work....
  • Excellent kid's science museum with loads of interactive activities. Highly recommended. Parking available (underground) at 1€/hour (2016).
  • Große Ausstellungen, faszinierende Themen. Teils zu starke Ausrichtung auf Jüngere. Sehr gute Sonderausstellungen.
  • My son and I really enjoyed the star wars experience, will need to come back again soon!
  • Thats correct 👍
