Oraselul Cunoasterii is the first interactiv science museum from Bucharest. We are a science center where people come together to play, learn, discover, invent, prototype and test new ideas. Our interactive galleries bring to life first scientific principles and contemporary science debates.

The Science Museum now holds a collection of over 80 items, including water experiments, roman bridge,tsunami simulator, pulley, labyrinth, chess table, running track, harp without strings. Plus, you can experience what it’s like to play basket-ball using air force. Because we believe that science can be fun and excited.

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2016 celebrated its eleventh annual show with some 1300 makers and 150,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. Thirty-one larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world—Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few— and over 150 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced in the United States and in 34 other countries around the world.
