A great technical exhibition that is totally hands-on. Ideal for kids...and big kids (60+). Set aside minimum 4 hours for visit, however 8 hours would be ideal to see everthing.

3 floors and hundreds of hands-on experiments about light, magnetism, sound, heat, etc. Instructions in English, German, French. The ticket is not cheap (27 CHF for an adult) but it is worth it. A visit will take several hours, so free up a day for it. Good for children and adults. We went (2 adults 30+) and enjoyed it very... More

Ha vying visited this place several times over many years I am still amazed as to the degree of interest it generates. The entrance fee is about CHF 30, a little less for student or over 65's, there is no incorporated entry that allows reduced entry cost with travel tickets; as was pointed out this is a science centre, not...

We went here and enjoyed all the hands on experience . My teen daughter enjoyed the practical experiments and demonstrations throughly. Though the labs here were mostly in German,but lots of everyday physics is hands on. Worth visiting with teenagers.

So much fun for the whole family! Me and my kids loved it! You will not have enough time to do all the experiments in 1 day, would suggest to stay overnight.

It's one of the best amazing Science experience centers (on purpose I do not use the word "museum") where all is touchable, tangible and self experimentation is the focus. With multiple language guidelines how to perform a experiment and what to expect to observe. Great shows with Tesla coils, gas explosions etc. are also on the program. Check out for... More

It was some time ago since our last visit so we decided to fill a bad weather day and visit the Technorama after an upgrade since our last visit. This is not a museum, it is a really great experience - not only for children or young people, for just anybody. You interact and do your experiences in whatever field... More
