This museum is a must visit for kids and adults alike. We spent 4 hours and still had some sections to cover. The exhibits are well arranged, with decent descriptions. And they are hands-on! My kids loved it. Took me back to my school and college days. I wish I had been to a museum like this to understand the... More

I didn't expect too much from Technorama honestly but fortunately I was greatly disappointed! The place is HUGE: 3 floors, several shows during the days, labs to enjoy during guided visits. There are several areas depending on the branch of science: Magnetism, Electricity, Gases, Wave sounds, Biology, etc full of small interactive experiments you can proof and explanation in 4... More

What an incredible experience. There is no way you can visit even half of the fantastic hands on exhibits in a single day. Water, magnets, optical illusions, music and much much more! Great for children of all ages from 5 to 99!

Interactive exhibits, shows and a little park. Unfortunately there's too much to handle in one day, but don't worry, because no matter where you start it's all fun!

Technorama is a brilliant place for all people who are either interested in analysing natural phenomena or who are interested in the combination of science and aesthetics. The exhibits are really cool, the staff is really friendly, and even if you have seen some Science Centers, there will be several exhibits which are new to you and really awesome. As... More

A great place for the kids to learn about physics and science. You need a full day to enjoy. There are plenty of games so plan enough time for the kids to play.

Great science museum close to zurich. I took my two kids (2 and 5) and their granddad on a day trip to the Technorama. All three generations loved it and didn't want to leave after 4 hours. All displays encourage hands on involvement and are suited for the casual/young visitor as well as the older visitors who can maybe understand... More

Technorama is a Science Center approx 30 minutes by train from Zurich center. There are over 500 experiment stations on three floors so you need at least one day to see and try them all... My 9 year old son loved the place and we will definitely go there next time too because we couldn't see them all...

This place is a must-see if you are with kids. A huge building containing a nice expose of different experiments and tools. You can play with magnets and experiment with many different tools. There is a restaurant inside, so just book few hours to be able to see everything.

Worth taking a half a day or more. Lots to see, if your at least a bit interested in natural sciences. And definitely lots of fun for kids.
