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.

Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre opened to the public on April 28, 1989. Heureka attracts on the average 280 000 visitors a year. Apart from the main exhibition Heureka usually displays two temporary exhibitions. Total exhibition space indoors amounts to 3500 m2. During summer season an outdoor exhibition area, Science Park Galilei, is available. Heureka features also a modern digital planetarium. Heureka is open around the year and it operates fully in three languages: Finnish, Swedish and English. Located in the City of Vantaa next to Tikkurila train station and near the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, Heureka is easy to access.

Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre has more than ten years of experience in building exhibitions that are designed to tour. Since 2003, Heureka Overseas Productions Ltd has been responsible for the rentals and sales of travelling exhibitions.
