    PROTO Invention Factory

    Can you imagine a walk in the heart of the Earth or on the bottom of the ocean? What about a ride with the world's first car, steam train or hot air balloon? You can do so at PROTO! In the historic Noblessner foundry, centuries-old scientific achievements and prototypes come to life with the help of virtual reality goggles.

    PROTO Invention Factory brings together virtual reality, science and the world of fantasy. The family-friendly centre is both entertaining as well as educational: thanks to the hands-on exhibits, you can explore physics and technology from an entirely new angle and experience things that you might not dare to try in real life! 

    The VR experience starts with some brief instructions and is suitable for all ages and abilities.

    In addition to the high-tech exhibits, PROTO also has a children's area with plenty of clever and fun activities for tiny explorers.
