“Lots to see, lots to do... even for griwn ups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Though you might get more out of the place if your a kid there are cool things to see also for grown ups. The current Body Worlds exhibit is really interesting but may divide folks as it's slightly gruesome for the faint of heart.

Whatever you plan to do in Finland, this place is a must see for both children and adults! They always have new exhibitions and new things to find out! Very interesting and useful!

“Heureka”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

What a disappointment, I was expecting a huge building with many things to see, but it was tiny and uninteresting.

“Especially nice for kids but fun for adults too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This is a great place to take your kids to for half a day. We were a bit too old for the main exhibition, but really enjoyed spending a few hours here as they are now hosting the famous Body Worlds exhibition of plastinated human bodies until September 2013.

You might consider visiting the place if you happen to change planes at the nearby Helsinki airport and have a few hours to kill. There's a direct bus from the airport every 10 minutes to the train station in Tikkurila and from there it's just a 500 m walk to Heureka.
