From the outside this monstrous industrial relic looks just that - monstrous. However, what has been created on the inside was truly amazing. Initially I felt that an exhibition of photos was not going to be that good, but four hours later I realized that I had had a truly remarkable afternoon. The highlight of the exhibition is a 20...

I have visited this place for two times. First time I say this place is amazing(arrangements, organizing, lights, elevator from inside and another's things) The roof from the top are amazing, a great view and I said is enough just to wait and watch. The price is average for one Museum like this.

We were visiting my brother who took us to see this Exhibition. The globe feature was amazing. A 20 meter diameter globe has hi-res moving satellite images projected on it, So you can view the earth from an astronauts viewpoint. The photographic displays were also incredible.

From the looks outside you would not think the inside would be as incredible/interesting as it is. There is an audio guide you can purchase for 3 euro, that explains exhibits to you. The photography is amazing that is displayed. It took us about 3 hours to go through the attraction, but we tend to read/look at everything. Exhibits have... More

Currently showing the Wonders of Nature exhibition, which has truly amazing photos of nature. Also the globe feature of the main auditorium is absolutely mesmerizing and well worth the time to sit back and watch the world go by

I saw the Wonders of nature exhibition. It is a great venue for exhibitions due to the large high space which is totally in the dark. They cleverly used it to hang a 20m diameter ball from the ceiling and project world images from space on there. The exhibition runs for a long time. If you liked the BBC series... More

A quite fantastic trip. Amazing photos of anilmals large and small, collections of seeds and wonderful photos of plants. Films of animals at play or feeding (sometimes on each other!). The highlight is naturally the 20m wide Earth that with the help of a bunch of high-end beamers shows you a birds (satellites) eye view of the Earth. Going through... More

This was the second time my wife and I have visited the Gasometer. The last time there was a UNESCO World Heritage Site display. This time was the “Wonders of Nature”, which was running from March 2106 until late 2017. The Gasometer at 100m high is HUGE and can get very busy, especially on public holidays. The Wonders of Nature... More

There have been lots of descriptions of the Gasometer - I am not going to add to those. What I want to review is the magnificent exhibition called: Wonders of Nature. It shows 150 large images of animals and plants - they are outstanding. The highlight for me: go to the top floor and marvel at he 20m large globe... More

This former. Gasometer is now used for exhibitions, but even when nothing is on people flock here to take the lift to the 13th floor where you get the most amazing view of the area. You can see how Oberhausen sprang up around for the river, canal and railway, how vast the industrial complexes must have been - and how,... More
