The whole area which belongs to the Techmania Science Center consists of approximately 30 000m2. There is the main hall, the Science Center, the 3D Planetarium the parking house and other objects and communications. Restored from the historic premises of the SKODA Company, a brand new urban space was created close to the city center. Its development has been gradual: the task of expanding the exhibition space from 3000 m2 in late 2008 to 10 000m2 in June 2014 has been a great challenge for all of people from Techmania team.
The future is clear: Techmania wants to become an integral part of informal education for schools and public in the Czech Republic. Our goal is to maintain the variety of interactive exhibitions, produce quality of scientific shows, workshops, lectures etc. We aim to be the leading expert in science communication in the Czech Republic and to promote science and technology as good as possible.
With the help of the interactive exhibitions and 3D Planetarium, Techmania can surely extend the offer of science popularization for its visitors. Physics, astrophysics, chemistry, mathematic, but also biology, geography and geology are now the fields of knowledge Techmania is able to talk about and to show to the visitors its beauty and benefits. The management of Techmania hopes and believes to conclude the year 2014 with around 200 000 satisfied, entertained and well educated visitors.
By the time the reconstruction of the whole area of Techmania Science Center would be finished in June 2014, the overall investment to the project would be about 1 billion CZK (which is about 37 Mil. EUR). The European funding just for the building and equipment of the 3D Planetarium was around 140 mil. CZK (more than 5 Mil. EUR).
