Explore scientific concepts at Heureka, an interactive museum with indoor and outdoor exhibits. The non-profit organization was named for the Greek expression meaning "I've found it," which explains its enthusiastic view of educating the public on scientific discoveries and methods. Visit over 200 exhibits, play outside at the Science Park Galilei, and view the stars from the center's planetarium. You and your family can also watch live shows, participate in games, and get involved in other programs here. A visit to Heureka represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Vantaa attractions planning site to plot your vacation.
Heureka is always worth a visit, lots of things to see and learn for people of all ages! Especially children will enjoy this place because they can try out and do scientific things for themselves too. more »
Wouldn't recommend for coupels etc.; the place is made for families and children. The children seemed to enjoy the exhibition and all the science games a lot, but not much for adults to do or to see. more »
A great place to spend a couple of hours with kids. Very entertaining, with still a sufficient knowledge content. Not the biggest science museum I've seen, but definitely among the good ones. And very easy to get to by train from the airport or the city.
Absolutely fantastic! 100% recommended for families and everyone. Wether you find learning fun or boring, this is your place! Exciting new exhibitions, old classics and a really cool gift shop, this is truly a place for discoveries!
