Yes, you have the opportunity several times a day to approach the thematic focuses of the exhibitions from different perspectives:

  • Use the Highlight Tours led by our info trainers to navigate through the wide range of topics. Each highlight tour is unique, as it does not follow a fixed itinerary and new aspects open up during each tour in a personal exchange with the info trainers.
  • Especially for families there is the Family Tour, where our youngest visitors can give free rein to their spirit of exploration and discovery.
  • If you would like to discover the museum together with a larger group, you can book an appointment under +43.732.7272.0 or center@ars.electronica.art.
  • You can find more guided tours on our website – and of course you can also explore the museum freely and learn more about the topics and projects in an exchange with our info trainers.

This varies and is based on how much time you have – you can experience the highlights as part of a guided tour, which lasts 1.5 hours, or spend the whole day in the museum.

There are no restrictions – you can visit the museum even shortly before the end of the opening hours. The entrance tickets are valid for 24 hours during the opening hours, so you can use the same ticket for the entrance the next day.
