This is the number one attraction if you want to teach your kids about science. It's also great way to spend your day and learn a bit more yourself as well.

It's quite a small science museum, but very engaging and interesting - lots of hands-on exhibits with multi-lingual displays. Best to come on less crowded days so you can have more opportunities to interact with the displays and the objects. The virtual driving simulation, Body...More

Fun way of learning new things that relate to your everyday-life. Lots of activities the kids can try, like driving a car(simulation), building an igloo,different games and puzzles and so on. Different things of interest for kids (and adults) of all ages.

I recently took my v small kids to the natural history museum in Helsinki and was amazed how much they absolutely loved the exhibits, even though they are so young (2 and 3 and a half) - I am therefore interested in taking them to the science centre to see if they find it as engaging - but would like to first find out incase it's really not suitable for very young kids?

Dear Heureka Museum Staff, I'm wondering if your exhibit on mental health promotes a narrow biological approach to the understanding and/or treatment of mental illness or does the exhibit propose treatment options that include psychotherapy and psychoanalysis? I look forward to your response. Sincerely, Richard Walters Bellevue, Washington USA
