PANKRATIUM GMÜND | House of Marvel
…where ART and SCIENCE come together to create amazement…
These days the world has become a noisy place and the quiet tones escape our notice all too easily. That is not the case in the House of Marvel. The Pankratium Gmünd offers people of all ages a chance to explore through interactive and creative experiments how we perceive the world of music, colour, shapes and movement. Over 50 stations provide the opportunity to investigate and discuss natural phenomena: discover fascinating sound machines such as the sound boat and the percussion made of drops, feel sounding, jumping water between your hands, take a walk in the sound-art-garden and get to know some overtone instruments through experimental musical improvisation.
Awarded with the Austrian Prize for Innovative Cultural Tourism, the Jacob Prize and the MAECENAS Prize.

PORSCHE CAR MUSEUM
The only private Porsche museum is in Gmünd in Carinthia, where between 1944 and 1950 the first Porsche cars were manufactured. The extensive collection belonging to the Family Pfeifhofer includes vehicles ranging from Porsche 356, Type 356 020 ALU, to the floating Porsche Hunting car (1956) as well as Porsche Rallye and racing cars. Another highlight of the museum is Austria’s first and only Police Porsche 911. A multimedia presentation informs visitors about the history and construction of Porsche cars.
Each year, the Porsche car museum hosts special exhibitions. Sufficient bus and car parking spaces are available right next to the museum.
