Heureka Goes Crazy

Heureka goes Crazy, the first-ever science center exhibition on mental health. This exhibition aims to dispel prejudices associated with mental health problems and to encourage people to take care of their own well-being.

Heureka Goes Crazy - Intro

Mental health is about finding the courage to lead a rich, meaningful life despite our own weaknesses. In the exhibition, visitors can test simulations of mental disorders and feed their troubles into the worry shredder. They can take part in touching and comforting accounts of people suffering from mental health disorders. The exhibition encourages visitors to fool around and surprise themselves, and take care of their own mental health. Some of the exhibits have been designed especially for children.

Interactive exhibits combine with photos and works of art to explore a subject that touches both on a personal and a social level. Scientists as well as people with own experiences of mental disorders have contributed their experience and expertise. Visitors will laugh and cry, while learning to understand themselves and others better.
