I really enjoyed this museum. The exhibitions were very interesting, a lot of them interactive. We were 2 adults with no kids and spent more than 3 hours there. There are a lot of activities and cool things to do with kids as well. There was all kinds of projects, the "internet and its downsides" exhibit I found extremely interesting.

I was fascinated watching this building change colors at night and only on the second visit did I notice that there was an amphitheater on the other side full of people watching the changing colors and listening to the music. Loved it!

It's a museum of science and technology and the gadgets and inventions you can see there are interesting. Most of them not so practical, but all of it is well worth seeing.

We visited on arrival on a Sunday in Linz as it is shut Monday, and enjoyed a longer than expected 3 hour visit. It can be hard to find museums that appeal to teenage boys, but the technology exhibits fascinated them. The staff were really helpful, and there is a lot to see even if you're a technophobe. We would... More

Simply must visit to see how far the human intellect has developed. Numerous attractions from various knowledge fields. Great staff! Don't miss the Deep Space 4K show! (it's be renovated soon to become 8K resolution!) Allow at least 4 hours to visit the venue.

This is a very innovative place really making all efforts to keep pace with all aspects of Science and Technology. The English language performances are available so if you have to wait for one, head upstairs to the restaurant for fabulous views of the Danube and the best Aperols in the City.

The combination from interesting science facts, video display and a first class dining section with a view over the river Rhein.

I had never seen a museum dedicated to the changes in technology. It boggled my mind the new ideas that are being worked on and displayed. It is both a museum and an active research facility.

Very bizarre. Did not live up to its billing. For one thing, most of the exhibits were not working or dysfunctional in one way or another. Many were ill-conceived bad conceptual art jokes. Begin with Parro, intended as a lifelike companion for folks with dementia but more like something out of mid 20th century special effects. Next, what is intended... More

Fabulous 3-D interactive theater; another theater with award-winning short films incorporating art and technology; great interactive exhibits for adults and children. Bargain price of 6 Euros for seniors.
