The place was very interesting, although make sure to put on enough clothes during winter season! Still, definitely going there again! The current exhibition was really interesting, but maybe the attitude "less is more" would have benefited the setup. Now there was a bit of information overdose or so. I guess the idea is not to concentrate on every single... More

We went with kids, I recommend only with kids that are older than 7. We went with toddler and 5yr olds. Nature installation with photography was nice, kids loved seeing large sized animals and insects. We sat at the bottom of earth installation and it was really mesmerizing. It was cooold wear proper cloths.

This site was very skilfully turned into a museum with very interesting exhibits. It is nice, tastefully done and big enough so that even on a very busy day you don't trip over other visitors. Also the environment is iteresting as there is a site around the gasometer where children (and adults) can climb trees with ropes etc....

If you go here during fall, winter, or spring, remember to wear enough clothing. It's very cold but the exhibitions are kinda cool. Make sure to check out the Earth on the top floor.

From the outside this monstrous industrial relic looks just that - monstrous. However, what has been created on the inside was truly amazing. Initially I felt that an exhibition of photos was not going to be that good, but four hours later I realized that I had had a truly remarkable afternoon. The highlight of the exhibition is a 20...

I have visited this place for two times. First time I say this place is amazing(arrangements, organizing, lights, elevator from inside and another's things) The roof from the top are amazing, a great view and I said is enough just to wait and watch. The price is average for one Museum like this.

We were visiting my brother who took us to see this Exhibition. The globe feature was amazing. A 20 meter diameter globe has hi-res moving satellite images projected on it, So you can view the earth from an astronauts viewpoint. The photographic displays were also incredible.

From the looks outside you would not think the inside would be as incredible/interesting as it is. There is an audio guide you can purchase for 3 euro, that explains exhibits to you. The photography is amazing that is displayed. It took us about 3 hours to go through the attraction, but we tend to read/look at everything. Exhibits have... More

Currently showing the Wonders of Nature exhibition, which has truly amazing photos of nature. Also the globe feature of the main auditorium is absolutely mesmerizing and well worth the time to sit back and watch the world go by
