Excellent place, high level of staff, presentations of newest technical achievements in many spheres of live. Great for families and children, but also grown ups can learn a lot. One of the top places to visit in Linz.

It is interesting museum for adults and teenagers. It makes you think of how advanced electronic solutions are. If you are old or young, german speaker or not - do not miss 8K room that shows space in 3D and other visual solutions that are for shure interesting to see. Entrance fee works for 24 hours...so you can come twice:)

Interessting 'exhibition'. I was there our 1,5 year old child. Looking around for fun. Nice 3D cinema, which is the highlight looking at entertainment. Not sure if it really special what they show there and if it it just quite unknown or that it is something normal....think the first one.

The ars electronica works hard to present the latest science in a nice packet which is easy to grasp. With "helpers" available everywhere to aid you and explain you never feel lost or not understanding, my two thumbs up!

Incredible exhibits. Knowlegable and friendly staff. I expected to spend an hour here, but 3 were filled without a moments boredom. All spoke perfect English even on the scientific aspects of the very interactive place.

This is a place which actually needs lots of time. There is so much to do, try, explore, learn... But even with limited time it is a source of inspiration. Really well done and very interesting. The staff is very friendly and is happy to assist with information.

Lucky enough to visit Linz while the Ars Electronica Centre Festival was on in this futuristic building on the banks of the Danube. We were blown away by the wonders of technology on display. Don't miss the permanent Deep Six 8k projection theatre with its massive 16x9m wall and floor screen in 2 and 3-D. Surprisingly many of the features... More
