“Better throw your money away in a trashbin”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

First of all,the location is far away from any other point of interest,so travelling more than half an hour(metro+walk) doesn't worth it.Secondly,thirdly and Finally,this is the most UNattractive attraction in the whole world,unless you have never been to a 3D cinema,or you haven't seen any op art image on the net.We expected more than thousands of 3- and 2-dimentional images hanging on the wall.10 minutes after our entry,for which we paid a fortune of 16€ per person,we were hurrying out of the building,with aching eyes.

“TOTAL RIP OFF!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Very disappointing, and way too expensive!!
Tiny exhibition, not helpful staff, and 16 euros to enter!!! What a rip off. I really feel sorry for everyone that pays to enter, it has a total of 50-60 painting/3D paintings, 6 way too easy puzzles and 3 mirrors. Waste of time and money.

“Not very exciting and much too expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

I went to this museum expecting a nice science museum with a lot of different scientific things to see, as their web site seems to promise. The price of 16 euros also makes you think that you will get to see something decent. Unfortunately I have to say that this museum is quite disappointing. The rooms are quite small and the 3D pictures and the optical illusions that are shown are not particularly new or exciting. You probably saw something similar or the same elsewhere. Overall the small exhibition is not bad, but I would really say it is not worth 16 euros. If I would have to pay 5 euros I would call the price OK and I would give this museum 3 stars, but at 16 euros it is really a total rip off. I must say I was very disappointed.

“Great two hours and very entertaining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

Helpful staff from the start and knowledgable if you have questions. If you are interested in all kinds of 3D images and puzzle pictures as well as a lot more, well worth the effort to get there. Nearby train station about 15 minutes from the Hauptbahnoff. Only downside for me (being English and poor in German) is that there is no English language guide book. Luckily most of the content is obvious. Will take a friend next time.
