The Phæno Science Center is an interactive science center in Wolfsburg, Germany, completed in 2005. Phæno arose from progressive urban planning by the City of Wolfsburg. In 1998 City officials were developing a plot of vacant, public land immediately adjacent to Wolfsburg’s railway station and just south of VW’s huge, then-unfinished attraction Autostadt. An art museum was planned for the site, but Dr. Wolfgang Guthardt, then the City’s Director for Culture, Sports and Education, knew that such an institution would compete with Wolfsburg’s successful Kunst Museum (Art Museum) and needed other options. Guthardt visited Technorama, a science center in Switzerland and became convinced that a science center in Wolfsburg would complement both Autostadt and the Kunst Museum.
