Interesting place to take the kids as it has all sorts of experiments and science lessons to play with. Especially loved the flight simulator and the gyrosphere. Explanations available in German and English.

Great place to go with small kids and even teenagers interested in science. My 14 yr old and I spent about 1.5 hours there on a rainy day. A lot of fun hands on things to do and almost everything had an English translation.
