  • The museum itself is quite old, it is one of the world's first scientific museums, in my opinion Moscow's "Experimentanium" and "Living Systems" are cooler and more modern. But if it's dinosaurs, we're going. Besides, we were here 7 years ago, you can say for the kids as the first. The exhibition with dinosaurs is divided into two parts: skeletons and moving models. All the information materials have been translated into Russian. For kids there is a dig and educational film. In the part where the models, there is a change of day and night, a storm rages. After the dinosaurs, we went to an interactive exhibition about how the brain works. When you enter you take one brain on the group and further, using it as a key to different stands or games, you go in turn on all stands. The museum has a restaurant and a shop.

  • A great place near Helsinki for children and adults. A huge number of all sorts of things and devices for different physical experiments. Interactive models, planetariums and temporary exhibitions will surprise anyone! No less interesting models and devices in the surrounding area. I spent half a day here and wished I couldn't stay longer.

  • 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!
