Overview
More
Marvelling at the fire tornado over six meters high, setting a ball in motion alone through brainwaves and relaxation, or lying as comfortably as a fakir on a bed of nails: over 350 phenomena amaze both young and old at phaeno in Wolfs-burg and kindle enthusiasm for science and technology. There's something to discover for everyone in Germany's unique Experimental Landscape. Families as well as individu-als, groups, or clubs and societies can all experience a wide spectrum of phenomena from the world they live in and find out what's behind them. And the best thing about it: phaeno is a hands-on adventure, where visitors are called upon to take an active part and influence what goes on. There are no prescribed routes through the exhibition, the direction taken is determined by the curiosity of the guests themselves. The path they choose leads them through such interesting fields of discovery as Energy, Mirrors, Vision or Life.

Visited Phaeno with friends and teeanage children. A lot to see and try.. half-day(together with Autostadt) was not nearly enough to get ‘through’ everything. Very good displays and activities.

This was the best science museum I have ever been to. 6 hours later.....we had such a good time. Adults and children. Worth the visit and the price of entry worth every penny.

Me and my 20-year-old engineer daughter visited the Phaeno for the morning. We are English speakers and were pleasantly surprised that about 85 % of the exhibits has Engish translations below the German. This is a VERY hands-on, interactive museum. We got there early and...More
