Impressive virtual reality experience and innovative robotics technology enable visitors to explore cities, underwater worlds and the age of dinosaurs in a vivid full-body experience!

A spectacular new arrival awaits all daring and thrill-seeking visitors in our permanent exhibition “In motion”: Birdly® gives visitors the opportunity to fly like a bird and discover fantastic perspectives in a realistic virtual reality experience. For an even more immersive full-body experience, users control their flight by moving their arms while they can even feel the wind on their faces. In addition, accompanying visitors can watch the Birdly® flight on a large-format screen.

Duration of the VR flight: 4 minutes

Tickets: You can book your ticket within a 30-minute time slot both online and at the museum’s ticket counter.

    Fancy admiring colourful coral reefs and swimming with dolphins and manta rays? This VR experience allows more than just literally “plunging into” the fascinating underwater world.
