Prepare to be amazed at the EXPLORA Science Centre

The EXPLORA Science Centre in Frankfurt specialises in visual phenomena and optical illusions that will fool the eye and trick the brain. It's a place for children aged five and upwards to learn by doing and experiment, play and discover.

Man is a curious being. Children never stop asking questions and grown-ups, too, try to expand their knowledge by reading books. Many a mystery of science and technology is finally explained at the EXPLORA in Frankfurt. This hands-on museum focuses on perception and illusion, art, language, maths and physics, and our five senses. In this unique exploratorium, which delivers plenty of 'aha' moments, interactive exhibits encourage children to learn and understand through the medium of play. Its 3D art trains the eyes and tricks the senses: wearing special 3D glasses, you can immerse yourself in a world of 3D, optical illusion and interactive works of art. Prepare to be amazed by science, technology and art as you've never seen them before!

Holograms, 3D art, anaglyphs, anamorphoses, trick pictures, stereoscopic art, light polarisation, optical illusions, impossible objects, inverted sculptures, mirror tunnels, zoetropes, DNA spirals, Rott's pendulum, optical art, an Ames room, two-way pictures, a theremin, sniff boxes, vectogrammes, triple vision, mathematical tangram and puzzle tables.

Play yourself smart is the slogan at the EXPLORA Science Centre!


The Schirn building itself is a bit like a modern art work in the heart of Frankfurt's old quarter, a light, angular design contrasting with the grand, red sandstone cathedral and the Römer, the old town hall. This art gallery lies in the heart of the city – and is an important focal point in Frankfurt's cultural life. It is also one of the most celebrated galleries in Germany and in Europe.

Schirn is the Hessian word for a structure such as a hut or a shed, but this belies its significance in the world of art. Since opening in 1986, the Schirn has staged some 200 exhibitions. It has no collection of its own but organises temporary exhibitions and projects on selected themes or the work of individual artists. The themed exhibitions have made most notable contribution to the gallery's international reputation, for instance Viennese art nouveau, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, the history of photography and subjects such as 'shopping – art and consumerism', and the visual art of the Stalin era. Major retrospectives have honoured artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Alberto Giacometti, Frida Kahlo, Bill Viola, Arnold Schoenberg, Henri Matisse and Julian Schnabel.

Taking a stance on topical themes and aspects of artistic creation can be said to be the Schirn's hallmark. It aims not only to engage visitors in a meaningful exhibition experience but also to encourage active participation in the cultural discussion.

Every two years, the Luminale biennial attracts around 140,000 visitors to Frankfurt city centre. 

Originally a fringe event for the international Light+Building trade fair at Frankfurt Exhibition Centre, it became increasingly popular in its own right. The streets, squares, skyscrapers, churches, museums and galleries of the city are presented in a completely different light and captivate visitors with spectacular and often interactive installations.
