Interesting facts

Description

The Technoseum presents 200 years of industrialisation history on an exhibition area of around 8,000 square metres. Displays of engineering and social history are complemented by interactive experiments in natural sciences and technology.

The Technoseum is a living museum in which you can experience the living and working conditions of people in bygone eras up close. Demonstration stands in the permanent exhibition feature such highlights as historic printing presses or a Württemberg T3 steam locomotive in action. Experienced demonstration technicians explain the details and production procedures.

Visitors can play an active part on many stands, for instance, making paper or printing postcards.

In the Elementa area you can get active and look into basic scientific principles and discoveries. Elementa is incorporated into the permanent exhibition of the history of industrialisation – which means that you can establish links, follow technical developments and understand historical connections. Techno Scouts are available at the exhibitions to assist with experiments or answer questions.

The largest exhibit can be found on the Neckar river, anchored directly beneath the Kurpfalz bridge. The historic paddle steamer, which was once a splendid Rhine pleasure for 2,500 passengers, is an exhibit and exhibition location at the same time. Visitors can take a journey through the history of inland navigation and learn about rescue diving and pastoral care on water. On guided tours, you can also see the steam engine and paddles in action.
