Tower of the Senses

© Museum Turm der Sinne

Let's be honest - did you know that there is a room where people can be mutated from giants to dwarfs without any technical tricks?

How can it be that within seconds we can forget how to throw a basketball through the net, although we had just mastered it minutes before?

You can discover the reasons for this yourself. A fascinating array of hands-on exhibits provoke curiosity and invite experimentation to answer the question: “How do our senses actually work?”
