Discovery Center Continium opened its doors in June of 2009 as the first Discovery Center of The Netherlands. With an extensive collection of industrial heritage and a vast amount of hands on exhibits the Continium combines the best of a museum and a science center. Visitors can discover how science and technology affect their day to day life, not only in the present time, but also in the past and the future. They can travel through time, experiment with science and build their own technical gadgets. Discovery Center Continium regularly presents a new temporary exhibition with a current topic.

With a wide variety of activities, from exhibition to travelling Science Truck, Discovery Center Continium wants to stimulate the participation of her visitors in creating a sustainable future. We want to open dialogue with our visitors on how people make sense of the world using science.

The Continium is a non-profit organisation funded by the Province of Limburg and is one of the three official provincial museums. Next to the funding by the regional government the Continium receives funding by admission, sponsorships and other forms of support.
