The world exhibition Expo 2020, bearing the motto Connecting Minds, Creating the Future, is the first world exhibition in an Arab country. The “Expo” is one of the major international exhibitions recognised by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE). The largest event ever held in the Arab world is expected to attract 190 participating countries and millions of visitors from all over the world. Among these 190 participating countries is also Austria with a pavilion which bears the motto “Austria makes Sense” – because what Austria represents and produces is not only meaningful, but also appeals to all senses. With a concept in terms of content and architecture that visitors of every nation can experience in a very direct and uncomplicated way.

Visiting the Deep Space presentations is only possible with a pre-booked ticket. Tickets are available at the Ars Electronica Center’s infodesk and can only be booked for the respective time slot of the museum visit ticket.
