The Science Center Spectrum in Berlin, Germany is part of the Deutsches Technikmuseum and located close to it in an administrational building of the former Anhalter Bahnhof. It is a place for scientific experiments and it is really hands-on: you can play yourself with 150 experiments. It was opened in 1983 and extended its size from 400 to 1400 square meters over time.
The Science Center Spectrum is the successor of the former experiments area within the Urania that existed since 1888. The experiments are divided into different sections like vision, acoustics, radioactivity, optics, mechanics and mirrors. At its center you can find a 17 meters long Foucault’s pendulum. The Science Center Spectrum is a nice place to play – even with smaller children. If you like it there, try the Universum in Bremen, Germany. I found the presentation of the experiments and the building itself there to be better – but fun is guaranteed at both places!
