We read some of the other reviews before going and since I spend a lot of time in the US tech industry and Silicon Valley we were a little apprehensive. No reason to be - it was great. True, some of the exhibits are a few years old (as some are at Disneyworld's EPCOT!). But there is some truly amazing... More

It's all in my title. A privilege to return annually or more to a city which is becoming as familiar as home thanks to Ars Electronica

Nothing amazing, went in the winter and didn't find it to be anything special. Yes it's interactive and good to see something different in Linz but it's not exactly spectacular. Has some cool exhibitions which are kind of futuristisc but nothing amazing.

This is a really great exhibition of electronic developments with a terrific 3-D fly-by experience of the solar system. Staff speak English and are very helpful.

If you are in Linz, I think this place shouldn't miss from your list...places to visit. We spent a while there are we were pleased by everything we have seen or experienced. Nice place to go with children too. Still, I could say that now there are more modern things/ devices, than could be found there and they aren't. Overall,... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend, and blew us away. The ground floor has a musical swing (yep, that's right) and a sensory immersion chamber, and that's even before you enter the museum itself. Whilst some of the exhibits were aimed more at a younger audience (a 'science lab' and 3D printing area), the museum also has... More

I learned a lot during the visit. The neighborhood is also quite nice. It is a beautiful small city. The technology center was not worth traveling to Linz for. If you are around and interested in technology. You should have a visit. Otherwise. Go to a more fun city and look up the information online.
