World of Civilization

What is the impact of technology on our lives and the environment we live in? How can we ourselves change the course of where the civilization is headed? The exposition won’t give you definitive answers about how should we shape our relationship with the world but it will provide information that might help us consider our actions and their effect on the world around us. The premise here is that if you want to change the world, start with yourself. Going through this exhibition, you will experience an ordinary day in everything but an ordinary way – the individual exhibits will transport you to third world countries where even drinking water is precious, you will get a peek into national cuisines, get to understand why education is so important, and what a difference it does if you recycle properly. Having a walk down the memory lane following the milestones in the history of Ostrava will show you how you can make your own imprint on history.

World of Science and Inventions

The exposition focuses on the different structures of the world around us and the fascinating modern day technologies. We make Math and Physics fun with our interactive exhibits that will show you different waves, systems and phenomena in a new light. You can explore the world around us in a great detail in our section about nano and micro technologies. Look inside your body and discover the incredible ways technology is used in medicine. Want to see beyond? Get to know all that is to come – from 3D printing to new developing materials, we have the future of technology at our fingertips.

World of Nature

Get to know the world around us through our exhibition about nature which is divided into eleven themed sections about the human body, energy, light, the universe, motion, or iron. Try out all of the interactive exhibits and try to catch fish like a dolphin, put together the human body, launch a hydrogen rocket, climb up our majestic tree to try out photosynthesis, or play with a classic Czech construction toy set Merkur which was used to build the first prototype of a machine making contact lenses. An exhibition with such name wouldn’t be complete without a piece of real nature, though – a part of the exhibition is also our rooftop garden which covers an area of 2,000m2 and lends a piece of greenery to the industrial surroundings.
