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

Great place to have fun and learn. Went with children 9-11 old and was worthwhile the two hours trip.

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

Having spent a day at Technorama while touring in the area, our family liked it so much that we returned to stay in Winterthur for a week to explore the Science Center more completely! This is more of a huge interactive lab for children than a conventional science museum. The staff are informed, enthusiastic and helpful. The experiments, labs and... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Technorama. We got there for opening time at 10am and stayed until 4.30pm. There are 500 exhibits so there's a lot to see and do. We did some together and then split up and found our own favourites. We sat in on 2 demonstrations and they were very enjoyable. We were handed out English... More

This is a wonderful attraction for the young and old. Learn and play and learn... Very nice layout on several floors and accessible with elevators also. It is all about physics and chemistry with real labs and teachers. If you think you missed something in school, go there... There is also a restaurant to marinate your experiences...

A funny and educating place for both kids and adults, as an adult it really put the theory of physics, from school, into something you can feel and experience.
