A bunch of 3D posters and other curiosities, some illusions, smoke and mirror type of things. Good for kids and school-goers. Unfortunately, the high entrance fee is not an illusion. Go and spend your money in some restaurant instead.

For old or young. in a nice neighborhood were you find good Restaurants a fresh look into what a museum can show. it is small and the private collection offers good examples of the optical illusions they are specialized. My kids loved it.

It's more like a school science centre than a museum, and only for local since everything us in Germans. Seriously over priced for non German speaking visitors.

So, it is written "EXPLORA: MUSEUM+SCIENCE+TECHNOLOGY". IT IS NOT MUSEUM, IT IS NOT CONNECTED WITH SCIENCE OR TECHNOLOGY! Even you can find this "Museum" in official guide, this is not Museum at all! All you can find there is 3D illusions and hologram pictures. It...More

Explora does not provide the experience you expect after visiting their website. It is terribly outdated and overprized (16 euro). It is like time stood still for 30 years with not much more on offer than 3D posters and old picture viewers.

We scanned a QR code at the entrance which gave us €2 each off the price and we still had to pay €34 for 2 adults and one child. I wish we hadn't bothered. Not much to see at all - largely 3d pictures and...More
