If you are a technology nerd then the Ars Electronica Centre or Museum of the Future as it is also known will be like heaven.

This is one of the most fascinating places you could visit and the different types of technology and interactive features are so much fun to use and learn about.

The centre is split up into different rooms and sections that contain various items such as a virtual ping pong  game, a huge 8k resolution screen that displays different parts of the world in stunning high definition, interactive screens that show satellite images of earth, new technologies such as robots that respond to their name being called and even an information system you can access using a special touch pen that displays an amazing amount of detail about the world’s population and cities.

Even if you are not a fan of new technologies, the Arts Electronica Centre is a fabulous place to visit.
