This is a really large museum, be sure to have enough time. There are many different exhibitions going on, when we visited especially exhibitions about power plants and household electronics from history to date were interesting and well-made. You can find some interactive stuff as well try out some things so it is good for children too. Everything is explained... More

...That like to know how things work from how our hearing works to household items to cars, planes and trains. The museum is vast with lots of activities for kids in the summer, vehicles to climb on and a huge playground area for kids. Don't bother if you are on a tight schedule but do if you've done the must-sees... More

The Technical Museum covers a wide range of industrial themes, from oil and gas drilling to computer technology. Of necessity there is therefore not a massive amount of any one thing. For example there are a few cars (I would have liked to have seen more) mainly by the Austrian manufacturer Steyr, which you probably won't see anywhere else, and... More

Extensive museum with many interesting exhibits. You will find here planes, trucks, locomotives, as well as pianos, computers, telephones... All this in the context of past and present.

My boyfriend and I went because he loves technology. The building is open and spacious, and is well kept. We paid in euros,but I believe card is accepted too. There are different floors with a variety of exhibits, and the majority are in english and german. The only exception was videos, which a few were only in german. We enjoyed... More

My friend and her boyfriend took me to the museum because she remembered it being so awesome and interactive. I think that we were all disappointed. The few interactive parts were boring and some seemed broken or didn't make much sense. There is a lot in the museum and it was kind of overwhelming. As a musician, I did enjoy... More

This museum has "interactive" as a main part of it's advertising. It is absolutely not. It's a traditional "look, don't touch" type museum with a few bits and pieces added on as an afterthought to get parents and kids in. Compared to, for example, MOSI in Manchester, it was terribly disappointing.

The museum is well organized and interesting. There are many exhibitions in the museum from different kinds of scientific areas. The place is mostly for kids - don't bother go there without them, you'll probably get bored.

This museum requires far more time than the recommended 2-3 hours. It is so interactive and interesting that it takes about two hours per level if you want to see everything it has to offer. Set entire day aside and enjoy this spacious and rich museum.
