Who doesn't know museums where you have to walk through the exhibition in total silence and can only look at everything from a distance? In the Dynamikum in Pirmasens things are a lot different! In the first Rhineland-Palatinate Science Centre the idea is namely to get your hands on the 160 exhibits and try them out to your heart's content to see what fascinating phenomenon from science and technology is behind them.
The overall theme is "movement" – whether in the sense of "get things moving" or "move yourself". And so there are loads of great things to discover on the total area of 4,000 m²: Who would like to race with an elephant? Ever tried to tame an unruly suitcase? Can you make sound visible?
In the Strecktal Nature Park immediately adjacent to the Pirmasens Science Centre thirteen outdoor exhibits were unveiled in early May 2014. This allows visitors of all ages to investigate, discover and try out for themselves lots of exciting scientific phenomena outside as well, in particular the subject of vertical draft – and, if they wish, in sporting combination with the DiscGolf course in the Strecktal valley successfully launched in 2012, on whose fairway the weather-resistant and rust-free exhibits are ideally integrated into the landscape.
