Frequently Asked Questions: Teknopolis

What are the differences between Teknopolis and Teknopolis + VR?

The two experiences allow you to choose your own digital adventure based on your desired experience, scheduling needs, and age requirements.

Teknopolis offers timed-entry sessions with access to all interactive installations on the main and lower levels of the BAM Fisher. The minimum age requirement is 6 years old.

Teknopolis + VR offers timed-entry sessions, with a two-hour time limit for VR, and access to all interactive installations on the main and lower levels of the BAM Fisher. In addition, this experience allows entry to immersive VR and 360-degree film experiences on the upper levels of the BAM Fisher. The minimum age requirement is 9 years old.

Can I come in before my purchased time?

Sessions will start promptly at their scheduled start time. We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time to check in, sign your VR waiver, and get instructions.

Will there be amenities?

There will be no concessions sold and no outside food allowed during Teknopolis. A complimentary coat-check will be available on the lower-level.

What is the suggested age for Teknopolis?

Ages 6 and up for Teknopolis and ages 9 and up for Teknopolis + VR. We also require adult supervision for any children under 12 and recommend one adult per young child (under age 8).

Anyone wanting to experience the interactive VR will need to sign a waiver upon arrival. No children under the age of 9 will be allowed to participate. The majority of the work is made of sensitive materials and technology that could be easily damaged if misused. Kids under 9 years naturally engage in modes of touch and play that might have a negative impact on the installations. Also, particularly for younger kids, some of the visuals can be overwhelming/overstimulating.

Are ticket exchanges allowed for Teknopolis and Teknopolis + VR?

Yes, ticket exchanges are allowed for Teknopolis and Teknopolis + VR based on availability. A ticket to a Teknopolis session may only be exchanged for another Teknopolis session. A ticket to a Teknopolis + VR session may only be exchanged for another Teknopolis + VR session. The exchange fee will apply.
