Very interesting, and unlike lots of attractions in the city the exhibits have English translations. There are also English speaking staff at most of the exhibits to help you get the most out of it, and tours. You need a lump of time to see it all, we popped in for an hour and just wizzed round the things that... More

The concept of this facility didn't live up to our hopes. Exhibits were rather random and there was no clear coherence behind the museum. Went to see the 3d show and most of the time was spent watching previews for future imax releases. Building architecture was the best part. If you have limited time in Linz, spend it elsewhere. Doesn't... More

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
