As one been to a few scientific centers of such kind, I want expecting TOO much from the place. Me and my girlfriend went to Heureka first thing in the morning and left just before it was about to close. The place had everything. I can't say that I found out a great amount of things that I hadn't known... More

We visit Heureka once a year: 25th of December. It is the best day to go because the place is not so crowded then. At Heureka you can experience and learn about science and technology in a hand-on environment which attracts especially children. There is also a planetarium which currently has four different films (á 25min). Tickets 15-22e/person which gives... More

Went there with a teenager who was notably disappointed as he was rather looking for more complex scientific topics...The museum is more suited for very young children ( max 10 years ?) where they could learn about more basic scientific phenomenons. Such museum is not rare across Europe ( ie Technopolis Mechelen). Once you visit one of them, don't expect... More

I have visited several times Heureka exhibitions. The place is quite large and interesting topics. In particular, the mind has remained a dinosaur exhibition a few years ago.

I've visited Heureka several times since childhood. Yearly changing exhibitions make sure that there will be plenty to see when visiting more than once. There's an own exhibition for children with fun and educational experiments to try, including building an igloo with real-size blocks, alive trained rats playing basketball with their human caretaker and lots of fun games to play....

We had an amazing day at Heureka. We planned to stay there just the morning but ended up spending the day. There's so much to do. Suitable for all ages and adults alike. Don't miss out. Put this at the top of your to do list. Don't forget to get your coin minted!
