in Vienna’s 5th district
Science can be fun – for everyone: In our project “Knowledge°room” we use vacant business premises and transform them into Pop-up Science Centers. Since 2013 we have been doing that successfully in various neighbourhoods in Vienna. At the Moment we are located in Wien-Margareten, Vienna´s 5th district. In the Knowledge°room everybody who is curious about science and technology has come to the right place. Every inquisitive mind is welcome. Admission is free. The only requirement is a bit of exploration spirit.
Different stations and exhibits invite our guests to discover, to try things out and to puzzle over them. There is, of course, a lot to learn but first and foremost the Knowledge°room is about enjoying working and thinking together.
Regularly changing our thematic focus provides variety and makes sure that even our regulars are never bored. Our visitors are supported by a multilingual team of guides. They help to find answers together and to satisfy the thirst for knowledge. Our visitors are supported by an intercultural team of guides. They help to find answers together and to satisfy the thirst for knowledge. Just like our visitors, our guides have various mother tongues and diverse cultural backgrounds. However different their histories, what they all have in common is their competence and love for their work.
We are especially proud of the diversity of our visitors. Here, people of different ages, life stories and interests come together. Our motto is: Everyone can get into science. No matter who you are, where you come from or what you do in everyday life, in the Knowledge°room there is something to discover for everybody.
