Audioversum Science Center
Prebook tickets for Audioversum to save time, particularly for peak season (July, August, and the February school break). Plan to spend an hour or two exploring the sound-focused exhibitions, and check to see if any museum-run activities like concerts or workshops are happening that interest you. Another way to see the museum is as part of an Innsbruck tourist card, which may include access to Audioversum as well as free or discounted entry to other attractions.
Things to Know Before You Go
The museum offers discounts for students, seniors, travelers with disabilities, and children (kids under six go free).
Audioversum—Science Center is a great choice for families and anyone with an interest in the senses, hearing, music, or the brain.
Families and others can ask for the interactive quiz app at the reception desk. It includes questions for children, teens, and adults and delivers commentary through headsets.
The center is fully wheelchair accessible with elevators and accessible bathrooms. Hearing-aid users should contact the museum ahead of time to access its induction loop.
There's a restaurant and a shop on site.
How to Get There
Conveniently placed in the heart of Innsbruck, Audioversum—Science Center is about a half-mile (800-meter) walk south of Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl), or a 5-minute stroll from Innsbruck’s main station (Hbf). There is a multistory parking lot just opposite the museum.
When to Get There
Audioversum—Science Center is open from morning until late afternoon Tuesday to Sunday, but it closes on Mondays and Austrian public holidays. Book in advance for guided tours, particularly during busy periods such as school vacations, and visit midweek for a more serene experience.
Interactive Exhibits Not to Miss at Audioversum
Audioversum uses the latest technology to explore the world of hearing. In the Sound Labyrinth, you don VR headsets to avoid virtual walls in mixed reality, while in the Audiospace sound installation, audio 3D wraps around every museumgoer. Explore the musical installation Hair Cells to create melodies and learn how damage to hair cells in the ears can lead to hearing loss.
