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.
