Wild Wild Wood – Bends, Flexes, Endures

The Wild Wild Wood talks about the importance of forests and long-lived wood
products in mitigating the climate change. The exhibition is a multisensory,
personal, and powerful experience of the wonders of wood, with many fun
shared activities!

Wild Wild Wood | Heureka

Touch, feel and try out the superpowers of wood.

Can you recognize a tree species by smell? What is the sound of wood? How do wooden buildings withstand earthquakes and fires?

The elegantly executed exhibition showcases the natural superpowers of wood, thanks to which almost anything can be built from furniture to bridges and skyscrapers. You can, for example, build the wooden city of your dreams, become a conductor and make the wooden orchestra play dedicated compositions, and use a laser to imprint your image onto birch plywood and keep a wooden key ring as a souvenir.

The Wild Wild Wood exhibition has been created in extensive collaboration with our partners who research, refine, and utilise wood. Our common message is that wood is a researched solution for building ecologically sustainable societies.
