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.
This science museum opened its doors to the public in 1989. However, this was our first visit. Probably because it was just recently the Finnish Museum Card was accepted. Also, we knew that this... more »

I visited this place with my 8 yrs old brother and he loved it there. Great place for all families with children. Many interesting activities for older teenagers too. There is a cafe/restaurant... 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!
If you are in Helsinki with children you have to visit this museum. It is must visit place in Helsinki. Even if you are without children go there and spend here about 3-5 hours. A lot of physical experiments which you can make by yourself. Great planetarium. Awesome stuff. You can even make your own coins there. Price is about 20 EUR per person. You can get there from Helsinki central station with any train to Tikkurila station.
I wished that there were more experiments there, and experiments for adults, too, and more theory explained behind the science. And also more science fields-related things in the building, like lasers and chemicals. The math area was VERY small and I wanted more of that. The animals display was very impressive and cool. The physics demonstrations were nice, too, and so were the Smart City interactive things.
Plan to spend an entire day at Heureka if you wish to see everything it has to offer. This museum is very fun and educational. I highly recommend to plan a trip just to visit Heureka if you haven't been there yet.
