If you are a family with kids visiting Helsinki area, Heureka is defenately worth the visit. There are usually some changing exhibitions, but also the permanent exhibition is really fun. There are explanations in at least four languages. Tip: don’t miss the rat baskeball game.

Very nice place for whole family and especially for kids. The 360 degree planetary movies are excellent for everybody. If one is coming from Helsinki just take a train to Tikkurila and walk the 1km from the rail way station to the Heureka scinece centre.
