They do scientific experiments for show here, give lectures, teach master-classes, and organize fascinating research programmes in a variety of fields. Laboratorium takes up three floors. All exhibits can be touched and handled, and you can always ask a museum employee to explain how things work. Laboratorium is proud of the fact that over 75,000 people have visited it its first year, and some eight thousand have attended its science shows and master-classes.e
