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.
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 highlights such as historic printing presses or a Württemberg T3 steam locomotive in action. Experienced demonstration technicians explain the details and production procedures.
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.
