Busier than usual

You are more than very welcome any day of the year, just be aware that schooldays and holiday periods can be quite busier than usual.

How much time do I reserve for a visit?

How long your visit to Technopolis takes, depends on many factors. Are you bringing children who want to get to the bottom of every experiment? Or are they more selective? Our offer also varies. In the weekend and on holidays we have shows and sometimes also workshops. We estimate that a visit lasts 4 hours on average, but it may be that your visit lasts longer or shorter.

We estimate that a visit takes one hour, although this varies from visitor to visitor. If you complete all assignments in the free activity booklet and if you are completely absorbed in our audio stories, videos and information boards, you will spend a lot more time. If you only feast your eyes, your voyage of discovery will not take as long.
