I was really excited about visiting this museum and getting a hands-on experience with different types of technology. Unfortunately, everything is only in German and most of it wasn't very intuitive, nor were there staff members around to help. Even when there were staff members...More

We love visiting this with the whole family. Lots of great hands-on information. My boys loved to be able to try out things and learn about different types of work. Glad it had a little Cafe to take my parents to as well.
