Great place with mathematical experiments to see, touch and play. Specially for children and families. It has a coffee and a shop.
We went as a family outing on Sunday. We were there for 2.5 hours (not nearly long enough) and were amazed at what we saw and heard. If you like science and math this is a very cool place to go. Our family of 4 paid €18 to enter (absolutely a fair price). We can highly recommend this place.
