To reduce costs of the pre-bought C3 City pass ticket also recommends.

So much fun you could spend days here! So many different aspects of science to learn about and unique interactive displays. You can tell they update the attractions often and keep fresh exhibits throughout. Loved the outdoor section as a nice break from being indoors. Spent 3 hours here and didn't see everything.
Interesting science exhibits and displays. Everything is well designed constructed (thanks to their in museum workshop) and it's a very hands-on experience. There's something for everyone, and there's so many exhibits that you won't be able to see everything in a day. You'll leave with some interesting random science facts that are applicable to your life. I'd recommend arriving early so as to maximize your trip. Have fun exploring!
