    Top 3 of the best museums I've been to. To call it a museum is not quite right. More an experience park. Very much try, game, new technologies, and more. Can really recommend a visit. Our children are 6 and 9 years old but it works probably good even if the children are a bit older too. To run own backhoe was his son's favorite!

    Was at the Museum along with six-year-old son. There was much he (and I) thought was interesting and instructive, but an overall sense is that the Museum would benefit from renewal. It was a lot of the older exhibits where sections of them did not work at all, and I personally think it does not fit into the concept. What's there to work. However, it must be mentioned that mining exhibitions were really good. Nice, authentic and informative.

    Interesting the various parts with the 100 most important inventions in history and mine, to be the Museum of technology the touch screen are awfully slow. The part relating to augmented reality is very interesting however the experience is not enjoyable as there are children out of control which disturb the proper functioning of the equipment. There are several very interesting interactive zones that allow you to experience first hand strength, reflexes, etc. There is certainly a lack of technologies related to the space age. We entered the free time but didn't pay to go there.

    Nice museum, very interesting to see especially the ground floor. So many activities for children, thus it's suitable for everyone. Note that it's free on Wednesdays evenings. I would recommend it.

    A lot of fun for kids of all ages (including me). A mix of exhibits and interactive stuff to play with, and it's huge. You could easily spend an entire day here. Luckily there's a restaurant on the premises!

    Great interactive museum. Suitable for all ages, in completely different ways. There's a lot of things to do here so plan your visit before coming here so that you know on what to spend your time.

    A very interesting technical museum, with lots of interactive sites, however not as many as in other museums across Europe. The museum is located near a beautiful forest and the access there is pretty easy, by bus from the city center. Very good exhibition, all in all definitely worth visiting.

    Very fun. First section is an exhibit of important inventions over time. Pretty neat. In the back are a bunch of interactive exhibits. We went there during the day on a weekday so it was not busy, and very nice. :o)
