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.

The hands on displays are great and the admission price is very good. It`s closed on Monday so plan for that. It`s right beside the train station and across the bridge form Autostadt, and right next door to a shopping centre. There`s plenty to do in Wolfsburg!
