Technorama Winterthur – the Only Science Center in Switzerland

The Technorama does not just make children want to play. Exciting experiments explain the laws of physics and chemical reactions.

At the only science center in Switzerland, children and adults can experiment, touch, and try to their heart’s content – in line with the in-house philosophy of “hands-on learning”. Over 500 experiment stations provide an opportunity to discover natural phenomena at first hand.

Visitors can watch frost patterns form, investigate cyclones with a fire tornado, play the raindrop drums, or admire a cloud vortex. In addition, the “Mindscapes” exhibition reveals that none of our senses can be trusted.
