The ExperiMINTa - A very special museum by citizens for citizens

The ExperiMINTa - A very special museum by citizens for citizens

Category: Museums & Art

When the Science Center ExperiMINTa opened in March 2011, it was an ambitious but also risky undertaking. Even though the idea of the non-profit association founded in 2008 to make the so-called MINT subjects (math, science, computer science and technology) accessible in a playful way for children as well as adults sounds good on paper, it was not foreseeable how the hands-on museum would be received by the citizens. After six years, a clear conclusion can be drawn: ExperiMINTa is a complete success and a real enrichment for Frankfurt!

In recent years, an average of 85,000 visitors have come to the museum to immerse themselves in the nine different thematic areas such as movement, power, energy and the environment at around 130 interactive experimental stations. Whether in the walk-in eye, on the devil's wheel, at the puzzle tables or with the giant soap skin - everywhere the connections between cause and effect can be explored in an entertaining and interesting way. What sounds rather abstract in textbooks becomes tangible and directly experienceable here. That is why it is deliberately said here "touching desired" and not "touching forbidden"!

Of course, the hands-on museum is a very special experience especially for children and school classes and also a nice way to bring learning to a playful but still effective level. But a visit to the Science Center ExperiMINTa is also absolutely worthwhile for accompanying adults and interested people of all ages. After a tour through the various stations of the building, you can relax in the cafeteria on the first floor. There is even a picnic area for groups. And if, after your experiences at the experiment stations, you're more interested in scientific and mathematical topics, you'll find something in the in-house shop, where you'll find a large selection of suitable books. So, take a look for yourself and see for yourself how much fun STEM subjects can be.
