But found much more. The place was pretty crowded, I think it was school holidays and a great place for kids to see how things work, good for adults as well. Had great fun!

We bought tickets for this before being told that very little of their exhibits have explanations in English. Despite this, we really enjoyed all the hands on displays. Even though it's geared towards children, there is fun to be had for all.

Family museum in central Trondheim, a museum where science becomes practical knowledge by learning by doing. The museum addresses all from children to adults, but children and young people get the most out of it.

In the museum, you will find many different moedls to try out and actually experience basic rules of physics. It is a lot of fun, clearly not only for children and did not fail to surprise me. In addition, the museum shop also has a...More

This is a great museum for kids and families. It explains basic concepts of physics to kids and adults alike in a very informative yet fun way. (Almost) everything is touchable and they even have a quiz for kids. If it's a rainy day in...More
