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 very special adventure world is waiting for the young and the old. There almost everything is about hearing (Latin: audio = I hear). The interactive stations invite to participate, they were developed together with the Ars Electronica Centre Linz. 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, is the Audiospace, an innovative 3-D sound installation. The AUDIOVERSUM is accessible barrier-free.

The permanent exhibition is completed by special exhibitions which comprise a wide range. At present, “Adventure Earth” shows interactive pictures from space and the earth from above. The second special exhibition “Colour Fascination” is dedicated to natural scientific contexts on the subject of colour. Camouflage colours, signal colours and warning colours - all of them are of great use in nature. The exhibition is topped off with the MED-EL World, which shows MED-EL hearing implants.
