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.

  • 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.

  • Great place to visit if interested in digital arts and culture in general. Since the exhibition usually covers around 100,000 Square meters I would suggest having two days to explore all the venues. Keep in mind to book in advance your accommodation because Linz is getting overcrowded at those dates.

  • Very interesting exhibits with interactive elements to keep young children interested. Opened my eyes a lot as to the danger and progression of the internet, however the lectures concerning astronomy and history/art were incredible. There are some in English for non-German speakers, and the images are displayed on a huge 8K screen. Very detailed talks and staff with a brilliant sense of humour presenting them!

  • Great experience. We didn't have much time to explore all. You need a few hours to see everything.

  • Absolutely loved it! Great temporary exhibition in collaboration with MIT lab and permanent exhibition is worth it. At the top os beautiful restaurant. All in all you can devote at least 4 h for it.
