  • ...Ganz within the meaning of the "Sendung mit der Maus"! Experiments to the try out for themselves and interesssnte information technology, animal world and of human development give educational insights children in vivid way on the home. The section with the mouse and the elephant offer also fun (create an animated film with Shaun the sheep) and movement (child-friendly indoor high rope garden). A point deduction for the rather sterile atmosphere at the entrance and in the atrium. Could you solve better. The prices of the integrated Bistro are on a pleasing level. Closed group rooms can be booked for celebrations.

  • What shall I say. It has brought no fun the children. It was boring, full and almost all broken or dirty.

  • Distributed on different area, you will find the world of natural science with all of their senses to inquire. Playful, challenging, young children friendly and adult friendly also. You can unfortunately forget Café, lifeless, about expensive real cheaters!

  • 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 👍
