Overview

The Experimentarium is part of the Science and Technology infrastructure and is designed with the intent of creating a museum of innovation and high technology targeting people of all ages. At the moment, it is fully functional with a complete infrastructure that provides over 2,000 square meters of exhibition space. Separate departments and service units such as an information desk, bookstore, children's workshops, laboratories and more are envisioned for the near future.

Shining the spotlight on children, the Experimentarium aims to create an environment which introduces kids to the world of science and technology through interactive exhibitions, hands-on workshops, lectures and demonstrations. Parents and visitors alike will also get a chance to participate and get acquainted with diverse innovative products. The goal is to foster creative thinking, disseminate knowledge and to spark and ignite a passion for science and technology.
