Lots of different science and electronics related exhibits set up through out the center. There really is something for everyone. Possibly geared towards a younger audience, but we still saw some really cool things!!

We could have spent days here -- there is so much to see & do & learn. It's a very hands-on place, and there are staff in each exhibit area, who do demonstrations and help you with activities. The 3D films are good (although we went to one that we thought was going to be in English, but it was... More

Very interesting museum, although sometimes a bit too technical. But definitely worth visiting. Don't miss the 3D presentations: absolutely amazing

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 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
