The Luxembourg Science Center is a fun and entertaining discovery center dedicated to science and technology.

LSC Team

In our large exploration room, visitors discover nearly 100 interactive stations, spectacular « science shows » and daily workshops allowing them to observe and interact with the wonders of our world.

Whether you are lifting a car with one hand, playing foosball with a robot, melting steel in seconds, or participating in a scientific cooking workshop, amazement and enthusiasm are guaranteed!

Science and technology are often approached in a way that is too abstract or too academic. This is why we have made it our mission to present these topics in a way that is clear and accessible to the general public.

Our philosophy

We put theory into practice through a fun and interactive approach that appeals to audiences of all ages.

In this sense, our scientific mediators constantly strive to optimize and renew the offered experiences, science shows and workshops.

The Luxembourg Science Center is open to the public every day and actively collaborates with schools & universities in Luxembourg and in the greater region.

Indeed, mediators and teachers have access to a collection of tools and exceptional experimental stations that make it possible to make the subjects studied in class more concrete. Valuable tools and facilities that educational institutions often do not have at their disposal on their premises.

In addition, in collaboration with the European and Luxembourg space agencies, training courses, challenges  and educational resources are regularly offered to teachers in the country via the ESERO project.

Furthermore, as in many other regions, the technology industry suffers from a lack of qualified personnel. This is one of the main reasons that prompted us to develop the « Future Skills » project.  A project that allows young people to discover through practice the professions and skills related to science, technology and industry of the future.
