Incredible exhibits. Knowlegable and friendly staff. I expected to spend an hour here, but 3 were filled without a moments boredom. All spoke perfect English even on the scientific aspects of the very interactive place.

This is a place which actually needs lots of time. There is so much to do, try, explore, learn... But even with limited time it is a source of inspiration. Really well done and very interesting. The staff is very friendly and is happy to assist with information.

Lucky enough to visit Linz while the Ars Electronica Centre Festival was on in this futuristic building on the banks of the Danube. We were blown away by the wonders of technology on display. Don't miss the permanent Deep Six 8k projection theatre with its massive 16x9m wall and floor screen in 2 and 3-D. Surprisingly many of the features... More

Was here for the Ars Electronica festival. Definitely worth a visit, especially during the festival, as the temporary exhibits tend to be outstanding

Great place to visit for a few hours. Really informative exhibits and hands on demonstrations of new technologies and the challenges that can come with them, e.g. data analytics as we all use the internet. Loved the swing that played the piano and pictures on the fly. Worth capturing by video.

We spent a rainy day there with 4 children; there was a lot to see and do and it was very well maintained. As someone else commented, the staff rato per visitor was very good. However it would have helped a lot if they smiled occasionally or attempted to be helpful, particularly those working in areas that attract children. The... More
