AUDIOVERSUM - Science Center Innsbruck

The world of hearing with its numerous facets is interactively presented in the AUDIOVERSUM.

Near the Taxispalais Art Hall in Innsbruck, a special adventure world is waiting for you. There almost everything is about hearing (Latin: audio = I hear). The interactive stations - developed together with the Ars Electronica Centre Linz - invite to participate. In the AUDIOVERSUM, medicine, technology, education and art are combined, so it’s a real science centre.

Do you want to make a three-dimensional journey through the ear or experience how memories are functioning? It’s all possible! Visitors can embark on a sonic journey, try spatial hearing at the binaural game or play melodies at the Hair Cells station. What is new, are the Audiospace, an innovative 3-D sound installation, the Singing Wall and the Sound Labyrinth with virtual walls which become visible only when audio signals are generated.

The barrier-free permanent exhibition is completed by special exhibitions which comprise a wide range. At present, “Listen to us!”, a photo exhibition by Lukas M. Hüller, shows the Austrian music scene and worldwide educational projects for children, and “How much prehistory is still in me?” has been telling since November 15, 2019, the impact of prehistory on our lives. The offer is completed by the MED-EL World, which shows MED-EL hearing implants.
