Great place for both the adults and children to spend a day together, most of the exhibits are bilingual , and the stuff is there and willing to help, there are great things to see, to try, to paint, to glue, to see the space, your body, eyes, great!

“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

I am really not interested when it comes to anything that has to do with electronics, so first I didn't intend to go to this place, but as it was included in the "Linz Card" (good value!!!) I went there. What can I say? Never before have I been so impressed by a museum, its standards, the friendlyness and helpfulness of the staff members, its contents and the many things you can try out. On the lowest level, they have a 3D printer so you can design something on a computer screen and then get it printed out for free. Close to the entrance there is a 3D show and it gives you a good idea about space. So even if you are NOT interested in science, go there - and if it is closed, sit down by the river and make the outside facade of it change its lights with your smartphone :-)

“3D show not that impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

If you are interested in science, this is a good place to explore various technologies. The famous 3D show of the universe is however not that spectacular, so don't expect too much.

“Interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is the best place in Linz, especially during the Ars Electronica festival (at the end of August). If you like art, science and technology, don't miss it!

“Funky!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

What a fun and unique place to visit by night! The neon-coloured lights will dazzle you! Try to see it from both sides of the river, for a more complete experience. I didn't go inside, though, I was mesmerized by the lights!
