Hosted in what looks like a just landed star ship, designed by the Iraq-born architect Zaha Hadid, Phaeno celebrates its first ten years of successful dissemination of science. It is a highly interactive science museums, where people of all ages can enjoy learning the law of physics. In fact at the time of our visit in mid May, it was... More

First, I am a structural engineer of many years and this museum is for kids but I still enjoyed myself. There are so many things to play with and read about. The science behind all of this is still fun to re-learn. The set up of the museum is great with many attractions for all different ages and preferences. Of... More

Hands on fun! You get to check out things that you get to touch. Scientific stuff and learning stuff. Typical German that you probably would never see in America.

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

Second time I started, where I finished last time, watched the area, which I didn't see, then checked out some new experiments, and still at the... 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
