Tietomaa is a science centre in Oulu, Finland. It is located in Myllytulli district near the city centre. It is the first science centre in Finland and it was opened to the public on 29 June 1988.
Tietomaa is located in old buildings of the Veljekset Åström Oy, a former leather processing factory. The main exhibitions are located in the former power station. Tietomaa's 45-metre (148 ft) observation tower with a glass elevator outside the tower is a former water tower of the factory. Tietomaa also features a giant movie theatre, which at its opening was the first-ever purpose-built IMAX theatre in Finland and in the Nordic Countries. The IMAX system was replaced with a Barco 4K system in 2013.

  • 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.
