We went there after picking up the new car at Autostadt as a way to motivate the kids 5 and 7), thinking that a few hours would be enough. Well, after three hours we had only seen about half of it and we (kids and parents!) could have easily spent three more!

On hearing about Phaeno, we weren't quite sure what to expect. On arriving, we saw many kids and thought that this is a children's venue. How wrong we were. Once you are inside everything is very hands on. In a short time, one is participating in building an arch, or hitting the drum of the fortex cannon. Yes there are... More

An extremely interesting day out for all ages. Lots of scientific experiments to do. All clearly explained in German and English. Fun for all ages. Well worth regular visits. Kids (and adults) are entertained all day.

What attracted me to the Phaeno Science Center is it's one of the works of famed architect Zaha Hadid. It's fitting that it's situated across the Autostadt. Impressive really. And yes, its entertaining and informative as well inside.

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. It is just next-door to... More
