I have read many reviews before going and the most were satisfying ... I have to say: No! This is absolutely overrated, there is nothing referring to a Museum of Science or of Senses! Everything is obsolete, looking old, dirty and very very boring. Invest...More

I would recommend it for tourists since there is many other things to do in the city, but locals with a free day can make the most of it, its even better if you have kids.

Went to visit with a 9 year old. She had lots of fun. It's very interactive and hands on. As the exhibit is in a tower on several floors, be prepared for narrow stairways. Interesting and fun for all ages.
