On more than 2,000 square meters, the center vividly conveys complex and multi-faceted information about BASF and chemistry in general. By means of 150 – mostly interactive – exhibits, innovative media use and sensory, even tactile experiences, technical knowledge is translated into comprehensible language and pictures that engross the mind.
