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.

Ars Electronica Center, Linz Reviews - Write a Review

  • The problem with a museum of modern innovation is that if you made it cutting edge in 2008 and never updated most of the exhibits and now it's 2017, your Museum is terrible. By definition. You're displaying technology that was old 5 years ago as if it's cutting edge. I'm sure it would've been mildly interesting in 2009, but really there is very little of interest here... Apart from the cloud artwork on the first floor and maybe the wax bodies exhibit when it's installed. The bathrooms are in the basement to the left as you face the stairs you can go back up - despite the WC symbols on every floor.

  • Best Museum I have been to in a long while. The deep space show is defiantly worth watching as well

  • Great displays of electronic interactions with our daily life, nice and well-trained educators. Worth the money. Book a tour - it is much better that way!

  • There were several interesting exhibitions, such as "Brain Lab". Some of the exhibitions did not work properly or at all.

  • The museum is very interacting, a great place for kids but as well for adults. Exhibitions about robotics and modern technology are mind blowing. Deep Space room is a must.
