  • A "Join" - Museum, not only for children. You can spend two or three hours with interesting experiments and actions. Whether this is worth the high price of admission (74,-euros for 2 adults and 2 children)? For comparison, we were half a year ago in Tartu (Estonia) in the AHAA Science Center. That is twice the size, 4 x so interesting, and not even half as expensive. We found that Eureka very overpriced. Also for Finland.
