  • Many layers of science, learning and fun in one package. A reasonable price. So much to do and experience that time passed twice what I thought. Just under six years old maybe a spunted young person getting the most out of everything, but nicely entertained and touhusi. Some items would have missed a little better guidance. The café was pretty modest.

  • Wasted time. This is not a museum, but a playroom for preschoolers! If you need to warm up and relax with the kids, then maybe this is for you.

  • Amazing Center. Many sections to go around. Check the timings of the 3D theater. There is an entrance fee. They have lockers and small cafe. There are a lot of interactions with boats, motorcycles and more. There are elevators. Check the tower, the view at the top is wonderful.
  • Surprisingly good food (burger/hot dog on weekend), massive fun even for small kids. Sadly still running on Finnish propriety, virtual snow mobile is about following a road, rules and traffic, instead of, y'know, doing what a person with a snowmobile wants to do: ride around a huge lake.
