The Science Center Spectrum of the Deutsches Technikmuseum is the oldest of its kind in Germany and particularly popular with children. On four floors and an area of around 2,000 square metres, more than 150 hands-on stations turn science and technology into a special experience. Touching and using the objects is expressly encouraged. Basic scientific principles and technical functions can be explored in a playful way and at a pace of one's own choosing.

There is a lot to discover in the colourful interactive world of the Science Center, for example at the hands-on stations in the "Light and Vision" area. Here you can mix large-format coloured light surfaces, whose origins lie in real sunlight, to create new shades of colour, or marvel at a rainbow floating in space that manages without any water at all. Experiments such as the Foucault pendulum as tall as a house or the Hexenhaus demonstrate the rotation of the earth or put the sense of orientation to the test.

A circumferential colour band in the spectral colours from violet to red marks the different content areas of the exhibition and facilitates orientation. Experiment stations, exhibits and supplementary content are designed to be optimally accessible, comprehensible and, as far as possible, intuitive to use.

In the Milestones school laboratory, which is part of the Science Center, pupils can em-bark on a journey through time into the workrooms of famous scientists. There they can carry out some important experiments from the history of science themselves on faith-ful replicas of historical experimental set-ups.
