The Ars Electronica Center is one of the most spectacular museums for computer science. Don't miss the Cave!

I had a great time in the centre, the staff are helpful and informative when explaining all the different exhibits. The technology is very impressive. My only slight downer was that the 3d deep space show i saw was entirely in german so i didnt understand any of the verbal information but it was still visually very good.

we spent about two hours in there.... the inside is smaller than it looks. there is a bit to do, and with participating friends it could be fun! worth checking out i think though.

We were docked on the river on a Viking Cruise Ship. The light show on the Electronica Center was a beautiful sight to see during the Christmas season. It was right up there with the lights at the Christmas Market.

Linz is a fascinating city and this place makes it all the better. With rotating exhibitions and permanent ones too, there's always something new and interesting to see. It can be busy during weekends and festivals so be warned for this! The actual exhibitions are quite interesting, with a giant 3D cinema on a wall and a floor in a... More

I visited the Ars Electronica during the yearly festival with which it shares its name. The museums collection covers an impressive range of advanced robotics, interactive installations, bio-tech and its consequences, numerous labs covering advanced engineering techniques such as 3d printing, laser cutting but also bio-engineering. Conversation starters for all ages. At night time you can control the museums facade... More

We decided to visit the Centre after seeing the amazing light-show which lights up the building every night. The concept of the Centre is the use of technology as an art form, this may sound pretentious, but in reality it isn't. The exhibits are very hands-on and cater for all ages. There is also a working science lab which encourages... More
