Joy of discovery - for kids
Nov 2020
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 museum has more to offer for kids.

The museum is very interactive and requires much touching to different things. During this COVID pandemic, it is maybe not the ideal place to explore science. Although there were hand disinfectant dispensers to be easily found.

For us, the wood exhibition was the most interesting. It demonstrated the versatility of wood as a material.

Disapointment
Oct 2020
1. Tickets
- You must buy a ticket online otherwise you will be staying in front of the cashier and do it on your mobile hanging a queue.
- You will still get a stickers at cashier, so no chance to avoid contact with cashier anyway.

2. Inside
- Old and damaged equipment for general exhibition
- Currently two exhibits are bit boring (dinosaurs was much more funnier year ago), might be useless if you have small kids
- Planetarium is good for kids 5+
- there's a lot of items that are touched by guests. I did not see at all that anybody from Heurika's stuff was trying to clean the equipment

3. Shop
- You can buy a stuff only if you have mobilpay or cash
- Don't buy toys/experiments with chemicals, they are expired and doesn't work

Great place for family with children!
Aug 2020 • Family
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 inside of the center, good for taking a break with some coffee..)

Our visit happened to be in the Covid time and tickets were sold online on the website only, which was quick and easy. Also the hand sanitizer machines were put in all center areas.

Definitely recommend!

Very interactive science center
Aug 2020 • Couples
Nice science center with lots of activities for all ages, enabling you to learn though doing. In addition, you get to make your own custom wood key decor and a coin with your own face on that you get to take with you home. Our personal highlight was the electricity-themed interactive room, as well as the various experiments. Definitely a worthwhile place to visit!

Good for the Children
Jul 2020
When we arrived at the Heureka science park we found that during the Covid crisis you are supposed to pre-book on line. We did not know this and had to pre-book at the enterance. It was very expensive to get in, something like 22 euros for adults and 15 euros for children. There was lots to do inside, some intended for adults and some for children. Everything had explanations in Finnish, Swedish, English and Russian although in my opinion many were too complicated for children to understand, even when explained by adults. As a result I noticed children were mostly just playing on the many attractions, without any idea of what was happening or why. But the children did seem to enjoy themselves, certainly a place to take them on a rainy day. The staff were helpful both at the desk and inside, one lady in particular was very helpful explaining how to use different activities.

For children, expensive tickets
Jul 2020 • Family
Heureka was a bit desappointing. The main exhibitions were about trees and farming. There were some fun and interactive technology exhibitions. Also interactive exhibition about brains was fun. I wouldn’t recommend Heureka for couples. Tickets were quite expensive.

Always an adventure

Heureka is always worth a visit, lots of things to see and learn for people of all ages! Especially children will enjoy this place because they can try out and do scientific things for themselves too.

Not for couples

Wouldn't recommend for coupels etc.; the place is made for families and children. The children seemed to enjoy the exhibition and all the science games a lot, but not much for adults to do or to see.

Fun and interactive event
Jan 2020 • Business
Fun and interactive place to have fun even as a adult. Take “brain” from the shelf and start with the experiments. Super fun as a company event, how does your coworkers cope with the diffend tasks and puzzles. Bonus is good lockers where you can store your jacket and bag so you can go all in. Larger amount of toilets with is a good thing.
