Birthday party at Heureka

Have fun with science!

Birthday party at Heureka

Would you like to treat a child to a birthday with a difference? Allow Heureka’s inspirers and our Science Restaurant to help out with the birthday planning. We offer an experience for all that’s active, imaginative – and tasty.

You can choose either our super-popular Birthday Chemistry package or a Heureka birthday. The Birthday Chemistry package includes colourful and fun chemistry experiments related to birthdays. The birthday package includes delicious offerings in the restaurant, as well as an unguided exploration of Heureka’s exhibitions and films in the planetarium.

As well as delicious birthday fare, Heureka birthdays include entry to Heureka’s exhibitions and planetarium films. The party table in the Science restaurant will be decorated with colourful streamers and balloons.

It’s a good idea to reserve at least two to three hours for the birthday celebration. The whole birthday group is welcome to see the exhibitions either before or after the scheduled birthday activities. Heureka is normally open on weekends from 10 am to 6 pm. You can check irregular opening hours from here.

Exhibition tickets are valid for the whole day. The Heureka ticket includes entrance to all of Heureka exhibitions, to the planetarium films and to programmes that are open to the public. You can check the daily programmes from here.

To make sure you get the time that suits you best, we recommend booking the birthday package well in advance. Please note: Both of the birthday packages are for a minimum of six persons.

Birthday Chemistry

(for children aged between 6 and 12, in Finnish, upon agreement also in Swedish and English)

The renewed Birthday Chemistry programme features making a birthday cake in science-centre style! The children will create a glow-in-the-dark birthday cake which generates clouds. They will also create soap bubbles in a new way. The birthday package also includes delicious offerings in the restaurant, as well as independent exploration of Heureka’s exhibitions and films in the planetarium.

The laboratory part of the event is available on Saturdays, and can be booked for either 12 pm, 2 pm or 4 pm. The show lasts about 40 minutes. Our inspirer takes the partygoers through the laboratory programme, then shows the group to the restaurant. It’s also a good idea to reserve time for freely exploring the exhibitions and for watching planetarium films. Maximum group size 16 (including children and adults)

The Birthday Chemistry packages are very popular, so please make your reservation inquiry at least two months in advance!

Heureka’s birthdays also include delicious birthday servings. The party table in the Science Restaurant will have plenty to eat and drink, and will be decorated with colourful streamers and balloons. When booking Heureka birthdays, please note that the time you choose is the time at which the birthday party food and drinks are served. The whole birthday group is welcome to see the exhibitions either before or after the scheduled birthday activities.

Heureka’s birthdays can be booked for Saturdays or Sundays from 11 am to 4 pm. The serving of food and drink lasts about half an hour, and always start on the hour. You can choose the time that’s best for you from our booking calendar.
