Ars Electronica CenterCurrently Closed
This is the newer centre, opened in 2009. Its futuristic look is very in keeping with the museum’s focus on humankind and where it is going. It’s probably Linz’s most popular attraction.
The museum explores contemporary topics on the cutting edge of art, technology and society. By the way of interactive exhibits – such as robots, DNA manipulation, space travel and digital animation – the museum explores humanity’s effect on its environment and what the future may look like.
The permanent exhibit has four labs and two other exhibits:
- Brain-Lab: Human brain, perception and medicine.
- Bio-Lab: Biotechnology and its applications.
- Fab-Lab: 3D printers and rapid prototyping.
- Robo-Lab: Robotics and prosthetics.
- Geo City: Current global developments in population and natural resources.
- Deep Space: An excellent 3D exhibit.
The special exhibitions tend to be wild too.

Very interesting experience. You can find workshops with 3D printers, interesting gadgets and robots. Highly recommended. Especially for kids.
A must see center. The 8d experience is amazing!!!! The ticket was well priced (I think only 8€) and was good for 24 hours so you can go back the next day. I also had lunch and wine in the restaurant - delish! !
Overall very good. Some of the displays take a fair about of time to figure out, especially in the VR area. We spent about 6 1/2 hrs in total. I’d suggest breaking the visit up with lunch. The cafe on the 3rd floor was excellent. The staff were extremely helpful. The deep space 3D presentation was totally cool
This was such a fun and interactive museum! Some of the staff even spoke English and were able to assist us with the exhibits. We had lunch at their little cafe and it was a good way to break up the visit. We spent about 3 hours there but could have stayed longer.
Amazing efforts. But details that I note being part of the industry should be looked at. Otherwise hats off.
