This museum was museum of the year for Sweden in 2016. It is a great place to spend half or a full day. The exhibits are very informative and educating, but what really steals the show are the interactive exhibits. If you go there with kids expect to spend at least half a day because the interactive exhibits are captivating.... More

We came with our three kids, and it's very disappointing to have almost all the information in Swedish only! My kids (even my oldest daughter) kept using the games without receiving the information behind. Very sad.

At first appearance, it seems this museum is all about the history of electronics...continue on to discover many different rooms & exhibits. My 7 & 2 year old and I spent over 4 hours here. Lots of fun hands-on learning. This is a fun & unique museum not to be compared to others.

When I heard the name of this museum, I thought it would be one of those futuristic museum with all the cool technology such as virtual reality or augmented reality. So when I came in and saw old TVs, cars, kitchen appliances, steam engine, cameras, etc. I was pretty disappointed. Some sections of the museum was closed because of renovation... More

This is a fantastic museum for kids. The Megamind exhibit makes grown ups wish they were kids and many parents were having a blast joining their children in activities such as painting with your eyes or pushing a ball through mental focus. The long term exhibit on innovations is well designed and full of illustrative objects. For the most part,... More

I thought itnwas a kids museum qhen i first arrived, and well it kind of was. Two grown men walking around, we felt a bit out of place. There was a lot to see and do and was good to kill a few hours. The park around it is nice.

The Museum of Science and Technology was certainly built with kids in mind. There were so many activities for kids to do and try, and even for adults. The megamind exhibition was mostly constructed around experiments and hands-on experiences including cutting edge experiments as mind control. There was an intreactive reconstruction of a mine downstairs which was great for minecraft... More

Many of the exhibits were closed and several were not working. They had many exhibits that seemed wonderful for children, but as an adult it was lacking. Maybe the best anecdote of our visit is as follows: we went into the relaxation room, where you are supposed to recline, close your eyes and let your mind grow... only to be... More

I brought my 6 year old and he stayed fairly entertained the entire tour. Amazingly, there was a lot of old tech I grew up with exhibited that kept my attention as well. It was like a walk through my childhood seeing some of those old machines we were impressed with as kids. This tour is worth the entrance cost... More

A great museum. Not too big for young children to visit and a lot of stuff to try out and play with. For adults also a lot to see - like the development of telephones or medical devices or baby carriages. Grandma was especially interested in seeing the transparent dishwasher in action. Playing area is worth extra thanks. For once... More
