This is a fun museum to go to for visitors! Its my first time here in Austria and this attraction is one to go too! They have different exhibits on 4 floors plus new ones soon opening in 2023. The science lab was pretty interesting!
A very children friendly museum. Tons of devices to try out, and the kids can just experience the fun of experiments or engineering programs by themselves. The staff are also very kind and helpful, even fun to talk to. They came to you to help before you tried to figure out things. We'll come again, definitely.
