Overpriced and disappointing
Nov 2016 • Family
We arrived at technotown after spending a lot of time getting there. Based on TripAdvisor reviews I thought it must be excellent. When we arrived we found out most activities were in Italian and we could only do one. We played with technical Lego for an hour, which was fun, but there was almost no interaction with staff and we paid 32 euro for that. I assumed we could do the other activities after but we had to pay extra and it would be in Italian. So we didn't. Even though the people were friendly, this is clearly not something that I can recommend to other non-Italian visitors. Overpriced and disappointing, and not worth the trip.

This place is amazing! It is very out-of-the-way,so most people don't notice it,but that doesn't mean you don't have to! I went there when they were doing a robot thing,and it was great! Our friend's face was carved into styrofoam, we got to make robots,and we got to learn tons of fun stuff. The kids loved it,the adults loved it, we all loved it.
Give the Crown to Technotown!!

Great Workshops for the Kids
Aug 2016 • Family
We took our 7 year old today to attend one of the workshops and she loved it. We attended the special effects one which included the kids acting with a blue screen behind them. One minute our daughter was being chased by a dragon the next she was flying above buildings. The kids were challenged to use their imagination and come up with a story to act out.

The gentleman running the workshop spoke numerous languages and was wonderful with the kids. He encouraged them, fed their imaginations and ensured the kids truly enjoyed their time within the workshop.

Technotown is not a museum, I would recommend going on-line and booking the workshop you want.

11 year old son LOVED it
Jul 2016 • Family
We stopped by on a very hot Friday afternoon in July (we are here for one month) in which you find very few children because it is off season. There was a group of 4 boys there with their mom and my son and them had a terrific time building robots with legos (also using laptops provided with instructions) and being led by one of the terrific staff members who speaks english. My son did not want to leave. The activities are complex in terms of skill and understanding so I would not recommend for younger kids.

Unfriendly, distant staff
Jul 2016 • Family
Traversed the city with a hot and unhappy 5 year old only to arrive and be turned away. We didn't mind that it was intended for children 6 & up and we did not meet requirements. We DID mind that well before they even discovered that our son was still 5, they were not welcoming and discouraging us to enter because we are not Italian. My son was devastated by the refusal of entry. Just one "mi dispiace" would have gone a long way. Instead we were met with cold indifference. Go to Explora il Museo dei Bambini instead! It's a 5 star experience with excellent service personnel and volunteers.

Excellent. Educational.
Very professional. Educational objectives. A lot of student and classroom in the morning. Staff is very professional, educate and honest. No commercial objective. Kids and adolescents enjoy really. Dont miss the Lego education part. A restaurant is close to the building prices are correct from 6 to 22 euro. Very nice place to visit with kids.

Great to take young kids

Just two subway stops from Termini on the blue line there is an amazing attraction called Technotown. They have a tonne of activities for kids that are education based. We chose the robotic lego session and my 9 year old got to build and program a motorized lego airplane. The staff was super nice and accommodated my son in English. I highly recommend this place as a stop. You will need 3 hours by the time you get there, participate and then get to the next thing you are doing. The fee to participate is really low (6E). Its a little hard to find... After you get off the subway, you will notice a couple of corporate buildings. In one of the buildings there is a Tavola Calda restaurant (amazing food), turn right onto the main street by the restaurant. You will walk by some beautiful homes and will see a piazza some 300 meters away. Once you pass the piazza, there is a church on the left hand side. Immediately after the church, turn left and walk down to the park entrance on the left. The park is huge. Look for kids play equipment then walk right up the hill. The Technotown building will be just up the hill.

All in Italian, but it worked for us!
Jun 2014 • Family
This is a great place for kids, but is is all in Italian. The folks at the ticket counter mostly speak Italian only. The guides speak mostly Italian. If you don't speak Italian, it might not work for you. The taxi driver did not recognize the name of the place, so we had him go to the street and drive slowly until we saw a sign. The TechnoTown sign is one of three signs. Go down the walkway to the building, past the cafe into the gift store where the ticket counter is located.

It worked for us, with our almost-ten year old son. Someone at the counter spoke enough English to get us tickets and get us a taxi back to the hotel. You buy tickets for games -- we did two games. You pay for each child and for each adult that accompanies the child. There is a guide that takes a group of children to the games.

The guide did all of the explanation in Italian, but added some English for my son. It was pretty easy to go along and figure it out, anyway. My son played one game that was old-style pong projected on the floor, but you ran back and forth across the floor to control the paddle. Lots of laughs and cheering. An Italian boy wanted the last game to be one-on-one against my son, which was nice.

It's a risk without an Italian-speaker, but it worked for us. Just know that it's a risk and go with it. It was a great experience for my son to be in that situation.
