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 Everything is obsolete, looking old, dirty and very very boring.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

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.

Took the Ansbach (Katterbach / Illesheim) home school support group here. It was great. German museums are fairly accessible to English speakers. This was too, and it was really interesting stuff about psychology, neurology, and science. Totally cool for people 8 and up we thought....More
