Birthday party at Heureka

Birthday party at Heureka

Would you like to organize your child a truly memorable birthday party? Heureka has two birthday party options for children aged 6 to 12 years. In the Birthday Chemistry theme party, the children will be inspired by chemistry in the laboratory. The Planetarium Birthday Party package will take the participants to see a special congratulatory video at the planetarium. Both birthday packages are for a minimum of six persons.

The activities take approximately 2–3 hours, and time should be reserved after for the children to explore Heureka’s exhibitions as well. Both birthday party packages include Heureka tickets, valid for the day, that include admission to all of Heureka’s exhibitions, planetarium films and events open to all visitors. Check the daily programmes here.
