The Technoseum is massive in size and you can bring the whole family. The two upper floors explain how gravity, electricity and leverage work but you can do lots of other science experiments there. The other floors display the history of technology and you can find whole trains and busses as well as newer technologies on display. No matter how old you are, there will be a lot to learn and explore.
