Fabulous 3-D interactive theater; another theater with award-winning short films incorporating art and technology; great interactive exhibits for adults and children. Bargain price of 6 Euros for seniors.

Even if you are not hungry you must visit it for a coffee and the view. Also a tour to see the work their doing at the Future Laboratory would be great!

Stayed here for a business conference in May 2015. The Deep Space interactive shows in the basement are stunning, as are the colour displays projected onto the building at nighttime. Amazing to think this place has been promoting the link between electronics and art since before the days of the personal computer.

A somewhat strange museum we found with a vast array of exhibits, all based on new technology. Very interactive and I expect well suited for kids to experiment (there were a lot of families there). But the exhibits did seem a bit random and not all of them were working although the 3D cinema was interesting.There is a whole army... More

Went for a exhibition opening with some friends who live in town. Really cool place, lots of interesting displays. A cool place to spend a few hours. At night the light show is really neat to watch from the inside.

Very interesting, and unlike lots of attractions in the city the exhibits have English translations. There are also English speaking staff at most of the exhibits to help you get the most out of it, and tours. You need a lump of time to see it all, we popped in for an hour and just wizzed round the things that... More

The concept of this facility didn't live up to our hopes. Exhibits were rather random and there was no clear coherence behind the museum. Went to see the 3d show and most of the time was spent watching previews for future imax releases. Building architecture was the best part. If you have limited time in Linz, spend it elsewhere. Doesn't... More

The building itsef is already a big sight. Many interactive possibilities, most interesting is the so called "Deep Space" - a great experience - also for kids!

I really like this center. We visited Ars Electronica 2 times and both was amazing. They have very good 3D cinema. I like it.
