Children's Science Centre

A world made for children
For the youngest among us, the big people world’ is still full of exciting experiences and adventures. That’s why the Children’s Science Centre opens a world made for children: your little ones will go on a journey of discovery through the city, the park and the worksite and they also get to learn about the human Body.

The worksite

On the worksite you can play with gears, tile a roof and finish a house which is under construction. But don’t forget your safety helmet. It’s better for a construction worker to be safe than sorry!

The park

The park is full of surprises! Find out if you can hear better with giant animal ears, see through the eyes of a fly, crawl into a tortoise’s shell and play hide and seek in a tree trunk.

The city

Life in the big city captures the imagination of the youngest children! Baking and delivering pizzas yourself, waiting tables in a restaurant, stacking shelves in a supermarket, printing a picture of yourself on a bank note or changing a tire… You can experience all that and more in the city!

My body

In the area called My Body, you will find out more about… you! Get behind the wheel of a real ambulance, lay down on a gurney or cycle around with a skeleton!

Hop” to the Children’s Science Centre!

In the Children’s Science Centre even the youngest ones (from 2.5 years old) can build their own playground! It is really easy and lots of fun, thanks to the Hop Up Playground.

The Hop Up Playground consists of various playing and building elements which you can use to build your own playground. From research tables to peaceful cosy corners, from a challenging obstacles course to submarines and time machines.
