Planetarium

A piece of sky in Heureka

Join us on an unforgettable journey into space and a chance to see the beauty of the Earth from the stars! Finnish Science Centre Heureka’s planetarium offers a unique view on life, nature and the universe.

The planetarium allows you to experience a unique visual 3D experience without glasses. Ever wondered what it would be like to fly inside a meteor shower? As the image on the hemisphere screen covers the entire field of vision, spectators feel like they are at the centre of everything.

Heureka’s planetarium is among the most modern and largest digital planetariums in Europe. All of the films shown in the planetarium are in Finnish, but they can also be enjoyed with headphones in Swedish, English and Russian. Headphones are available to visitors at the planetarium’s entrance.

We recommend that visitors to the planetarium are 6 years and older. Children under 3 years of age are not permitted inside the planetarium. The films currently being screened in the planetarium are listed below.
