Everything inside is interactive allowing you to learn, play, and tinker with all sorts of very interesting science experiments. Also has a number of larger exhibits that are cool to see the staff perform, such as the fire tornado or the superconducting magnetic track. As an engineer, this place was awesome to visit, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back... More

After reading quite a few reviews here, I thought half day should be sufficient to cover the whole place. Turns out that is not true. You get drawn into the many wonderful exhibits here and you are constantly trying to learn what is happening and how. Great place to learn something which you already thought you knew. There are instructions... More

I took my family there on a rainy day thinking of spending maybe 2 hours, but we found everyting so interesting and well explained that we stayed about 5, we left only because we have a baby and were already tired. A must if stopping in Wolfsburg. Worth a detour if you are in the area.

"Let's spend an hour at Phaeno!" they said. "We just need to kill time!" they said. Three hours later, we were still playing around with the different exhibits. We just had to try everything out. At first we were a bit skeptical because we saw a lot of kids, but there's a bit of something for everyone. + Diversity of... More

I went to Phaeno with my two - teenage sons and I didn't think they are going to enjoy it too much...but we spent there over 3 hours and they never say they were bored. There are lost of different interactive experiences for all - children, teenagers and adults. Definitely must to try.

There is so much to see and experience, it takes a while. If possible, allow a whole day for just this one museum, it's excellent.
