Heureka is the Finnish equivalent of a Children´s museum. There you can visit a planetarium, science lab, and various exhibitions, or single-handedly lift a car, if you want. There´s also a flying carpet (well, ok, floating), and rats playing basketball... fun and discoveries for hours!

Me and my 11 yo son definitely enjoyed the visit. But when I planned it, I thought we would spend a lot more time there or even two days (we stayed near in Sokos)! Mmm... in fact 3 hours + Planetarium are too much, IMHO. My advice: don't buy tickets via website, as it doesn't give you to purchase "Exhibitions... More

This museum is worth a visit, although it is a bit far away from the city center there are transportations to the museum. It is amazing and extreamly good for children. Worth it!

There are plenty of experiment stations in Heureka. If you come with children you should definitely book a whole day for the visit. You can easily come there by train from city center (single train ticket 5 e/adult).

My 4- and 6-year-old boys were in awe of all the attractions although everything had to be explained. The explanations are at least in Finnish, Swedish and English there. I recommend!

The place is quite small, so if you have visited Heureka before you propably find yourself bored after 45 minutes. You can reach the place by train or car easily, it's located just few hundred meters from Tikkurila train station.

Heureka is very easy to get to from anywhere by the train. We felt like the newest exhibitions they had were more aimed for kids. As adults we didn't find most of the things that suitable for us. We have visited Heureka several times before and we enjoyed those exhibitions a lot more. The rat basketball is always the highlight... More
