  • 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 »

  • 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.
