Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 131 reviews

Definitely worth seeing. You should take some time if you want to see everything in peace. Highlights are of course the Concorde and the Tupolev. Otherwise, of course, car fans get their money's worth, keyword Formula 1, Ferraris,... The Imax film about the Hubble telescope was also definitely worth seeing. So: a really successful day, especially for our boys (13 and 17) :-)

eine interessante alternative zu klassischen stadtführungen.. wir fanden die umsetzung sehr gut. vor allem die rätsel waren spannend und haben für sehr viel gesprächsstoff gesorgt. man lernt per zufall neue orte kennenlernen. aber eigentlich geht es nur um den kriminalfall. nichts für touristen die sich für historische fakten interessieren.

Very interesting with many very neat exhibits. Just a look at the Concorde and the Tupolev is worthwhile. The entrance fee is justified considering the large investment.

The map on the voucher should be more detailed so that you don't have to search for the meeting point forever.

Wir fanden das Konzept sehr witzig und hatten echt viel Spaß!
