Thought we pop in after lunch for a short visit but ended up staying for over 2 hours. Lots to see and explore even for adults. Worth a visit if you have extra days in Austria.

Great place especially for kids. One of the best science centres Ive ever been to and we spent almost 3h there. There are lots of interactive exhibits, as well as a reptile zoo and aquarium. Definitely recommended and had a great time there.
