This was by far my favorite attraction in Linz. If you like interactive high tech museums, this is for you. From the 8K 3-D video shows to the hands on labs, I was fascinated. My tip: Take a break and enjoy a drink or something...More

We were mostly enthusiastic about the 3D (8K) show here. The rest was somehow a disappointment (also some cool stuff, of course). I have to point out that the staff are really nice and helpful. If you have teenagers.. Definitely worth the visit.
