From the first moment, the children are immersed in the experience. All of the exhibits are interactive, encouraging children to find out about the world of science around them.

Placed in a really impressive building by late Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, Phaeno is a fantastic museum dedicated to science and technology in general. It is suited for both kids and adults and hours just pass by while hopscotching from one attraction or experiment to the next. Absolutely advisable and with the 13€ entrance fee.

The Phaeno is a museum to experiment with kids, even though it is very interesting also for adults.I would recommend to go if you are in wolfsburg and specially with kids.

If you're not really into science and find normal museums boring, this is the place for you! The Phaeno is not a normal museum, it in fact is a self experience museum. You can do all the experiments yourself, which makes a lot of fun and is way more interesting than just reading or watching stuff. It's great for kids... More

We have never visited a similar museum with such interesting areas. What makes it most attractive is the interaction between visitor and experiments. It is also possible to visit it all in one day without the children getting bored or nervous.

You can say this is a planetarium instead of science museum as many people call it. This is excellent for kids who want to learn more on how things work, with real models explaining details.
