Went together with my wife.
Both educated people and we had great pleasure to learn about new technologies in the light and optics field.

Great opportunities to take pictures and have fun and learn.

Good for children as well

This is a very fun and original exhibition which will take you about an hour to go through with a guide and as much as you'd like to play with the interactive showpieces after it. As a 30 y.o I've really enjoyed my visit, but as a kid I'd want to stay there until the closing hours.

This is not your typical science museum, don't miss it, it has really original showpieces that you're unlikely to see anywhere else!

It cost me around 3,5 euros for the grownup ticket, including a tour-guide.

There was a museum tour guide getting ready to give a tour in English which we were able to join. This was an excellent small museum with many holograms and then rooms with interactive optical illusions exhibits- great for our 11 and 14 year old. A highlight was the glass "keyboard" with some radioactive proof pieces. Our tour guide spoke excellent English, had us fully involved and was very informative and entertaining. A hidden gem.
