EXPERIMINTA closed from 21st September to 1st October

Due to renovations, the EXPERIMINTA ScienceCenter will be closed to visitors from Monday, 21st September to Thursday, 1st October 2020.

From Friday, the 2nd of October 2020, we will be back for you.

+++ EXPERIMINTA open again +++

EXPERIMINTA ScienceCenter is open with reduced opening hours due to the corona pandemic. You can visit us at the following times:

Friday to Sunday
10.00 to 18.00 hours in each case

During the Hessian autumn vacations from October 2 to 18, 2020, the following extended opening hours apply:
Tuesday to Sunday
10.00 to 18.00 hours in each case

For the protection of all visitors and employees, the following hygiene rules apply:

  • Due to the Hessian Corona regulations, all visitors over 6 years of age must wear masks throughout the building. The masks must be brought along. There are none for sale.
  • Tickets can be purchased normally at the cash desk. An advance booking is not necessary. However, we ask all visitors to pay as cashless as possible.
  • The number of visitors in the building is limited. An online reservation is not necessary. Based on the experience of the first few days, waiting times at the entrance are not to be expected.
    All persons must at all times keep a distance of 1.5 metres from other persons.
  • Visiting time is limited to a maximum of 2 hours.
  • Lockers are not available until further notice. We ask all visitors to leave bags in the car or at home if possible. If necessary, bags can be left unattended in the group cloakroom.
  • Experimental stations that currently seem questionable (e.g. because you have to get close to your face) or that are difficult to clean have been locked or removed from the exhibition. In addition, a maximum of 2 people are allowed to be in the shadow theatre at any time, and a maximum of 1 person in the walk-in eye. The energy go-kart can be used by a maximum of 2 people at the same time. If your favourite station is among the restricted or unusable stations, we ask for your understanding for this measure.
  • The cafeteria will remain closed until further notice.
  • Until further notice, there will be no science shows, devil's wheel demonstrations and offers at the flight simulator. Children's birthday parties and workshops will be held with separate hygiene concepts.
  • The cleaning intervals for the experimental stations have been significantly increased. In particular, all grip surfaces, buttons, etc. are disinfected several times a day at fixed intervals and as required. The same applies to handrails, door handles, taps, the EC unit at the cash desk etc.
  • Visitors are requested to disinfect their hands before entering the exhibition and to wash their hands regularly during their visit. Disinfectant dispensers are available.

Even though the opening of EXPERIMINTA is initially only possible to a very limited extent, we are pleased to finally be able to be there for our visitors again. As soon as circumstances permit, we will gradually lift the restrictions and also extend the opening hours again.
