    Underground treasures, robotics for all ages, smoking potions, spectacular magic—a different theme each day. The choice is yours!


  • Guided tours of the interpretation center for the whole family to explore all aspects of electricity

    The guides will take you through the renovated exhibition galleries, revealing the secrets of Watson, the electric eel, and making your hair stand on end with the Van de Graaff generator. Fun for all ages!
