Experience

What does it feel like to be in the eye of a storm? What does your body look like when it turns into ice or rubber? And, will a slice of bread dropped from a height always land with the buttered side down? Find out on your tour through experimenta.

Everyone is a research scientist in the four Discovery Worlds: Stoffwechsel, KopfSachen, WeltBlick and Forscherland. Our interactive stations invite you to learn more about the world and yourself. From an expedition through the tiny universe under the microscope and the exploration of the large water landscape to the “hop tutorial” with a bionic kangaroo.

The ticket shop is currently only available in German
