Heureka’s exhibitions are interactive. The main exhibition has over 200 exhibits from many fields of science as well as a number of activity points. In addition to the main exhibition Heureka houses two temporary exhibitions.
Heureka is a unique high-level cultural and educational institution that is among Finland’s most popular leisure time destinations. Its mission is twofold: on the one hand the Science Centre operates in the leisure time market, and on the other hand it performs important educational and public service tasks.
Quality studies show that Heureka is in the top rank of Finnish leisure time centres. They also shows that Heureka is strengthening knowledge about the natural sciences in Finland. The Science Centre’s influences extend to the motivation of schoolchildren, the attitudes of their parents and the career choices of young people. Heureka produces useful back-up material for teachers and school classes.
