Indvielsen af det nye Experimentarium på 2 minutter

Experimentarium, Denmark’s brand new Science Center, opened its doors on 26th January. 2017 Its new building offers 11,500 sqm of exhibitions in a new and spectacular architecture only 15 minutes north of Copenhagen City Centre.

Exhibitions are spread across several floors, bursting with experiences for all ages. The exhibitions include the world’s first interactive cinema equipped with motion sensors, where everyone in the auditorium has to cooperate, an enormous roof terrace for open-air activities and 16 challenging and interactive exhibits that explore everything from the human body to the fascinating and fun science of soap bubbles.

Experimentarium is a new version of the original Experimentarium, which opened in 1991 and has thrilled more than 8,2 million visitors through the years. “We look forward to inviting families from all over the world inside the new Experimentarium for some truly phenomenal and science-rich experiences,” declared Experimentarium CEO, Kim Gladstone Herlev.

Experimentarium will be hosting the 2019 Ecsite Annual Conference. The whole event, including the conference's three days of sessions, will be hosted in the science centre. You can look forward to a special edition!
