For science lovers, this place offers all sorts of interesting things. The indoors tropical forest or mimic of it is incredible and is in my opinion, the best part of the whole experience.

Hello. What size are the lockers in Universeum? We'll be checking out of our hotel and was wondering if we can store a small carry on luggage in there. Thanks.

I agree better to keep it in Hotel. The lockers are smaller so your bags might not fit in. You can keep the same in central station as well.
