Participating and contributing are the core principle behind the DASA Working World Exhibition in Dortmund. In the exhibition, under the motto "Experience: People // Work // Technology" you can experience the working worlds of yesterday, today and tomorrow with all your senses. A wealth of practical experience – have you ever had a dental drill in your hand? Or sat in a cockpit? You can in Dortmund. The jobs from different industries have been re-enacted and made accessible for you.
What will tomorrow bring?
A new highlight is the almost 800 square metre "New Working Worlds" exhibition area, which deals with the topic of the future. He shows you the realm of possibilities and weaves through real objects with fiction and emotions, with media and people. You will wander through a centuries-long history of visions of the future or come across megatrends such as globalisation, demography and digitisation. You will experience a lot of smart technology and can even create your own avatar. In addition, you can become part of the Future Exchange and actively participate in shaping the exhibition.
Interactive for everyone
A central theme of the interactive experience exhibition is the presentation of central human values such as intactness, dignity, health or participation in social life in relation to daily working life. The exhibition is exciting and informative at the same time and therefore a popular destination for school classes. But even if you are travelling with kith & kin, the DASA in Dortmund is worth a visit, because in addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum regularly shows temporary exhibitions on various topics.
The DASA Working World Exhibition was opened in 1993 on 13,000 square metres of exhibition space in Dortmund Dorstfeld as part of the"Expo 2000" world exhibition. It was built very close to the Technical University of Dortmund, well located on the A40 motorway and not far from Dortmund city centre. You can combine your visit to the DASA with a shopping tour through the Kreuzviertel or with a visit to the German Football Museum. If you are interested in art and culture, take a look at the Dortmunder U, the centre for art and creativity.
