Elementa 1

permanent exhibition

in short

Since it opened in 2004, this participatory exhibition has become a major reason for coming to the TECHNOSEUM. This is where you can get active and look into basic scientific principles and discoveries. Elementa is incorporated into the permanent exhibition of the history of industrialisation – which means that visitors can establish links, follow technical developments and understand historical connections.

TECHNOSEUM - Landesmuseum für Technik und Arbeit in Mannheim

in detail

Elementa 1 demonstrates groundbreaking findings in natural science and technology at the beginning of the industrial revolution. Visitors can perform their own experiments, for example, turning a piece of wood using a pole lathe, or using a bridge built by Leonardo da Vinci to find out what makes an arched bridge so stable and how this knowledge is still deployed in producing folded boxes and other items . The subject matter ranges from optics to mechanics and computation – historic computers such as the abacus and Napier’s bones and original instruments from the Mannheim Observatory of 1774 transport visitors back to the period before 1800.
