The "mini"

For children from 2-6 years old

The museum's area for small children is dedicated to the playful side of technology. Here children can encounter technological and scientific phenomena for the first time, in a child-friendly setting in 350 m². Please: Hands on!

Open daily: 10 am - 5.45 pm

TIP: "mini mobil"

The 600 m² adventure area for children aged 2 to 8: Here children will find out everything there is to know about the exciting topic of mobility!

Areas full of adventure and discovery:

  • Road circuit: Get behind the wheel of all sorts of vehicles and dart through the town, tunnels and countryside on our special track.
  • Ship: Ship ahoy! Cast your rod over the railing and try out your angling skills. Or open up the treasure chest and dress up as a pilot, astronaut or police officer. In the meantime the adults can relax on deck and watch over you as you negotiate the circuit.
  • Space: Meanwhile the youngest among might want to explore space, launch a rocket, or build a lunar landscape.
  • Airport: Perhaps help with the baggage security checks and with loading the aircraft. Fly the model airplane from the cockpit of our ‘mini mobil aircraft’ and try and fly it above the clouds – but don’t forget to fuel up the aircraft beforehand.

Open daily: 10 am - 5.45 pm
