I stumbled upon the MuWa by searching for "quirky things to do in Graz," and I'm so happy I found it. The museum offers several exhibits that involve the idea of perception. My favorite was a contraption that was supposed to help the blind to "see" what's happening in front of them. It was really a unique place, and the... More

A fantastic small museum located in a former bath house, which adds to the unusual experience. We were warmly welcomed by the museum keeper, who took time to explain each installation and helped us experiment with it ourselves. Highly recommended for those who enjoy finding unique places, rather than following the beaten track!

It is not really a museum but an experimental attraction, I guess. You don;t go there to just stare at some things, you interact with everything. The only bad thing about it is that it is too small, we wanted more :) Once you have visited this, you learn and understand more about the human eye, vision and visual perception.... More
