Heureka

PLAY IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF RESEARCH

Just wanted to start with that awesome quote from Albert Einstein. It hangs at the entrance to Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre in Vantaa. We spent a super fun day there with my Dad Anssi and his wife Kirsti.

...and right at the entry there is a big area with simple wooden blocks that anybody can play with. This is lots of fun!

Dante rode the bike on the tightrope! Then Lili did too - and wanted to do it again and again.

The big themed exhibit was 'Animals inside out'. It showed real animals preserved with muscles and bones etc. - completely spellbinding. These images show a horse skeleton (truth be told I thought it was some Saurus-thingy, and Lili said 'Mooooom! That's a HORSE'). The image above it is a foal showing all the musculature.   They even had a real elephant!
