  • 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)
  • 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.
  • Great place to encourage kids of all ages to play creatively. The newly refurbished mine exhibit boasts several hands on virtual use of mining equipment. The play area adjacent to the mine is perfect for kids wanting to build using different materials. Megamind is a big favourite as you can physically do challenges or games. They have a new computer-connected climbing wall where you can play computer games projected on the climbing wall. There are so many more exhibits about the environment and different inventions, plus it will cost you only two entrance tickets to get a year's entry card, toddlers go in for no fee!
  • A great place to take the kids, we spent most of the day there and still didn't see everything. Good variety on interactive displays to keep the kids engaged.
  • Great exhibitions and all working too! Went with a range of adults and children (from 4 to 14) on a weekday afternoon. The café serves sandwiches (big and small), cakes and a selection of hot good with a good choice of salad. There are lockers (returnable 10kr) and a cloakroom for storing all your coats and bags. We started at the bottom and worked our way up, the first two floors are great for the younger ones and make sure you don't miss the mine part (with explosions and massive wheels) We did the whole place in about 3 hours and has lots of fun, lots of interactive stuff, very quiet and i don't think there​ was anything that was broken!
