The building itsef is already a big sight. Many interactive possibilities, most interesting is the so called "Deep Space" - a great experience - also for kids!

I really like this center. We visited Ars Electronica 2 times and both was amazing. They have very good 3D cinema. I like it.

Ars Electronica Center is the most prominent thing in Linz city center for me. I've been in Linz several times and two times in Ars Electronica. For the first time (about 6 years ago) it was quite good, interesting equipment, some surprising facts received, but the technology presented wasn't as high-end as I expected. Nowadays Ars Electronica is much bigger... More

I may have had too high expectations from "into the future" museum . Everyone in Linz seems to recommed it. We went there as a group of 3, and had quite a lot of fun. Lot of interesting things to do, including making your own music, and getting your designs printed on a 3D printer. The guides there are extremely... More

Whoever thinks of itself as a person interested in arts, science, emerging technologies, unexpected researches and fantastic creative shows, Ars Electronica and its festival are MUST. Just that simple.

ARS Electronica showcases new technology. It has 3D films, a history of the internet display and downstairs a series of "labs" with technology on music creation, biology, 3D printing and lots of other cool stuff. It is very hands on with lots of activities to try with helpful guides. A wonderful place to spend a couple of hours - particularly... More

Picture this: I'm a geek who's backpacking through Europe and suddenly find out that there's this place in the middle of Austria, I totally had to see it so off I went. What an amazing collection of gizmos and stuff that you can play with, touch or use, the 3D movie is amazing and I'm pretty sure it is the... More

The museum had a range of exhibits to keep the kids learning and entertained. These ranged from some older exhibits on basic items like sound - to getting to try new 3D printers. There was also a wonderful 3D movie where you got to stand up and feel like you were interacting with the movie. The museum is just over... More

Situated very close to where our river cruise docked, the Ars Electronica was an easy walk across the Danube. The exhibits are diverse and interesting. There are many, many hands-on stations - lots of fun for all ages. The infotrainers (as the aides are called) are very helpful and many speak fluent English. Can easily be done in 2 hours... More
