DIRECTIONS & PARKING

The Explorado children's museum has very good traffic connections and can be reached easily by public and private transport. There is free, but limited, parking onsite. Especially on weekends and public holidays, parking space right in front of the museum may be difficult to find. Further down the Philosophenweg, around of the harbour, you find further big parking spaces, that have to be paid. From there you walk about 5 minutes to the Explorado.

BY TRAIN & BUS

Bus & Bahn

From Duisburg main station, you take the bus 934 in direction "Kaßlerfeld / Am Unkelstein" to stop "Hansegracht" (it takes around 8 min.). There you turn into the Philosophenweg and walk only 2 minutes straight until the Explorado children's museum.
