  • Very interesting day. Great for the kids that can...must touch and play with everything. Unfortunately, when we went, in the first hall, some explanations were missing (only in German). We also did...

  • My 5 year old loved moving from one display to another, for him they were all games! It was not overtly crowded. There were sanitizing stations around. Overall nice experience.

  • Wonderful experience for the kids (12&13 years old). Enough things to do for at least 2 days. Our kids enjoyed every minute and I believe we were the last ones to leave at the end of the day. Highly recommended for all ages.
  • Place as really fun. Especially if you got children. We were just two adults but it was quite nice to experiment ourselves with everything there. Nothing new learned but it was interesting to make well known experiment in real life. You need at least 3,5-4 hours there! Don't forget about the area outside.
  • It's really great. So many things that it's even a bit overwhelming. A bit too many people, considering the age in which we live in - this was a worrying thing. Having multilingual explanation cards was really helpful. Food for thought: It would be better if there was an app with ability to simply share a QR code.
  • One of the few museum-like attractions that work well for both kids and adults. Probably research the theme floors beforehand or quickly go through all halls after entry to figure out where to spent most of your time, because you'll have trouble spending enough time on all attractions in a day.
  • My kids love it and every time we find something new to do. The newly added external area is full of fun things to do. Highly recommend!
