Great hands on museum
Jan 2020 • Business
This place is totally for kids and their families but today we held a business meeting in their excellent conference area. Strayed into the exhibits at lunchtime and watched hoards of kids playing with loads of science demonstrations. Brilliant. Meeting was good, food was good and love this place. Just like Copernicus in Warsaw

Excellent to go with the family. Many interesting objects you can play with. There is a cafeteria to rest if necessary. All ages even the parents can find something interesting.

OK, but lost of things are not working
Oct 2019
I live very close to Technopolis and have been many times because my kids are always enthusiastic, so that enthusiasm is good.
Personally, I have mixed feelings about it.

I find too many items don't work. Maintenance should be better. Even some relatively new things don't work. The result is that few things keep the attention of the kids. They just grab something, test it and then move on. I would not expect too much learning here, it's more browsing.
If you go, make sure you do to the shows - Dutch only though.

So a place that would require some more maintenance and attention.
A pity, it has lots of potential.

Thank you for your honest reaction. We're sorry that you have mixed feelings about your visit. At the moment we are in the middle of a big renewal project. Our offer will be critically evaluated. Also the exhibition room will be renewed, and this to optimize the experience of our visitors. The complete renewal will be done in different phases. However Technopolis always stays open. We apologize for the inconvenience that some exhibits will be closed during this process, however this is necessary to move on and to improve. We thank you for your understanding and we hope we can welcome you again soon in Technopolis.

Great place for kids, young and old
Feb 2019
We've been many times now with grandkids of ages ranging from 7 to 18, and always had a good time.
Each time, there are the "old favourite" attractions, but there are always some new ones, too.

Fun and interactive
Oct 2019 • Family
It's worth a visit especially for kids. There are a lot of things to see and try. Kids will surely love it since they can touch and manipulate the displays. The place can get a bit full by midday but becomes more quiet around 3 pm. There are locker rooms and a cafeteria. Easy to locate and just a short bus ride from the Mechelen station.

Great Day
Aug 2019 • Family
We went with 7 kids (ages 3-13) and they all had great time.

Staff are super friendly and helpful as we asked for a quite room to pray and they gladly arranged one.

Mixed feelings
Mar 2019 • Family
I came here as a teenager twenty+ years ago it was impressive and innovative. It seems not too much has changed over time. Several setups were out of order. It also feels like a kinder garten... kids running free playing not really learning. So mixed feelings.
As for the cafetaria... food should be thouroughly cooked. 'Healthy food' is much more expensive than other. Fries are probably the worst I had in Belgium. Advice: bring your own food.

Unsuitable for toddlers
Feb 2019 • Family
Wildly unsuitable for younger ones - bordering on dangerous, left after 20mins. Went having heard it was suitable for toddlers - definitely is not. went mid morning on a week day - was FULL of older school kids, even the area supposedly for younger ones was packed with older kids running around and pushing, very little if anything at all for kids under 4 I would say. Fair enough that kids under 4 are free, but still costs 37euro for 2 adults to take the kid in, which is appalling given nothing for that age. They should warn you of this on entry & should also at least notify you when it’s so busy. Will Never go back, even when the kids are old enough, after our experience this time.

Hello Thank you for your honest reaction and feedback. At some days, a lot of scool groups visit Technopolis and the area for younger children could be crowdy then. If you want to give us more information or detail about the day of your visit, please let us know on info@technopolis.be. Best regards Technopolis

Great but bad catering
Jan 2019 • Family
It's an excellent "touch everything" museum where your children will have a blast. When we visited it was rather crowded and the catering didn't forsee this so there wasn't a lot of choice left to eat something. We went for a piece of pie. This was still frozen!!! There weren't any plates available either. The management of this should be evaluated.
