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.
Сам музей довольно старый, это один из первых в мире научных музеев, на мой взгляд московские "Экспериментаниум" и "Живые системы" круче и современнее. Но раз уж динозавры, значит едем.

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 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!
