  • This is the ultimate hands-on science museum. We took our science-oriented six-year-old, and I'd say he was just old enough to really do most of the things, learn from some of them, and really enjoy....  more »

  • Amazing science museum! there is such a great variety of things to do! great for school trips, great for families, just great all round. Also have an awesome selection of toys/gadgets/souvenirs in the shop at the exit. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Recommended!
  • Been to Science museums in Boston, Houston and London and find that this one offers the best hands on experiences with hundreds of robustly maintained exhibits. Seldom seen so many delighted children, and the inner children brought out of the most jaded adult. All exhibits equally well documented in several languages.
  • There are a lot of great experiments and exhibits. Pretty much all popular/ important/ interesting phenomena are demonstrated in some way. I do think it could be modernised a bit and some new exhibits added because after going there a couple times there's nothing new there to go back for.
  • Highly interesting museum. Great place with lots of things and different effects, phenomena and other things to explore. Fantastic that one can try and experience so many small experiments. One should definitely as well see the shows they produce in the different areas. Bring a lot of time, plan for a break after some hours to relax the brain before getting back into it. Very insightful. Good to play and good to learn.
  • Highly recommend to take a few hours (even a day!) to explore this gem. The center consist of different floors, each presenting different puzzles, illusions and physics experiments. Not only do you learn a lot from it, but most of them are interactive and show you new perspectives. There are often live shows that explain to you how electricity is mafe, for examples. In conclusion, an amazing hands-on experience on different experiments in physics.
