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.

I have to agree with the observations of some other visitors: this is not modern science anymore. I can't say for certain since this was my first visit, but it seems that the museum got stuck in time and everyday technology just passed by. The staff was friendly but some just seemed to know how outdated it was and thus... More

We four visited this place yesterday and found it most interesting. We are Americans and don't speak German, so the info trainers were invaluable. And they were delightful too, in explaining the amazing bits of technology here. Best was English speaking presentation using 2D, showing how medicine can use two dimensional technology. Also enjoyed creating a picture on a small... More

If you have any sense of enquiry into the future, the Ars Electronica Center should not be missed. Displays are inventive and thoroughly engrossing. The current 'Deep Space' exhibit provides a number of very high definition videos, the 'GeoCity' exhibit investigates the digital world and how it follows our lives and the 'New Views of Humankind' looks at how science...

I like the informations. What I dislike, waiting... A cinema screen 8 or 12K exceptional in the world.
