Description

It’s your turn to play !


Learning by doing! What could be more fascinating than discovering a scientific field through stimulating, hands-on experiments? The Luxembourg Science Center in Differdange is a classroom, museum and laboratory in one, designed to expose visitors to all kinds of scientific experiments.

At more than fifty different stations, children and adults alike can test, touch, smell, listen, feel and above all learn—without even realizing it! Discover scientific and technological phenomena while having a blast.

The centre offers lessons in chemistry, biology, astronomy, robotics, combustion engines, acoustics and even mathematics like you've never had before! Forget notebooks and blackboards, desks and textbooks. At the Luxembourg Science Center, electricity is discovered via a Tesla transformer and mechanics by experimenting with static equilibrium, gravity, liquids, construction materials and resistance.

A perfect outing for individuals and groups alike, the Luxembourg Science Center offers a wide range of exciting installations and organized workshops. You can enjoy spectacular demonstrations and even create your own unique objects to take home with you.
