Playful science for everyone.
Experimentarium is a world-class science center in Hellerup, just 6 km north of Central Copenhagen.
The Experimentarium re-opened in 2017 after a complete make-over. The science center truly is a celebration of curiosity, dedicated to playful science and offering hours of fun for the entire familiy.
Experimentarium brings science to life through hands-on exploration. Three indoor floors with 18 interactive exhibitions about science and technology, an interactive rooftop, science shows, a restaurant - the Experimentarium is huge and, not surprisingly, the place is especially popular with families.
Interactive and hands-on science
Some of the highlights of the exhibitions include the “Tunnel of Senses”, where you are ‘born' at one end and 'die' in the other, and along the way you experience your senses unfold and fade away. In the enormous interactive ball track of ‘The Port’, you ship pork and designer furniture to the Far East and bring computers and rice back to Denmark and learn an important lesson about world trade and CO2.
Dive into the physics and chemistry of water and go on an underwater safari in the mysterious submarine in the water exhibition ‘The Beach’. Do not miss 'The Bubblearium' where you can blow the most amazing soap bubbles or ‘The Idea Company’, where you can build prototypes of your own inventions.
Forget about popcorn and relaxing in soft chairs in “The Interactive Film Theater”. Here you must jump, skip and dance to help the girl Anna in the fight against a mysterious fog.
Miniverset – science for toddlers and preschoolers
In ’Miniverset’ children aged 1-5 years can learn about science through play. Children are natural born scientists - every day they discover new things and learn about the world through play. ’Miniverset’ is a fun, inspiring and safe environment that nurtures children's basic understanding of science, while they and their adults are busy having the time of their lives.
The Interactive Rooftop
On the top of the building, you will find the new rooftop terrace, offering a range of fun and interactive experiences under an open sky, making Experimentarium a safe choice in all weather (open from spring to fall).
