The Science Center set up by the German Museum of Technology was founded in 1983 and is the oldest of its kind in Germany. The centre is especially popular with kids: in fact, more than 1,400 m2 and 150 interactive experiment stations found on four floors make science and technology a special experience for the whole family.
After undergoing a comprehensive modernisation that ended in August 2013, the centre now offers many new features. At the experiment stations in the "Light and Sight" area, visitors are invited to create new colour tones by mixing large-scale light surfaces originating from real sunlight. Visitors can also marvel at a rainbow suspended in the air without the use of any water. Tried and true experiments, including the Foucault's Pendulum or the Hexenhaus, challenge our sense of orientation and give us and up-close look at how the earth rotates.
The exhibition's different areas are easily navigated by means of a revolving colour band featuring spectral colours from violet to red. It's also easy to access, understand and use the centre's various experiment stations, exhibition pieces and additional content. Interactive media stations give visitors the opportunity to gain even deeper information on the various themes.
