Vantaa Museums

Finnish Aviation Museum

The Finnish Aviation Museum is a museum specialising in aircraft, located near Helsinki Airport in Veromies, Vantaa, Finland. The Aviation Museum Society (Finnish: Ilmailumuseoyhdistys ry) was founded on 4 December 1969. Opened in 1972, the museum was initially located in the basement of the Helsinki Airport terminal but received its own facilities in 1981. The museum has constantly expanded and today has an office wing, research rooms, aviation library, archive, and an auditorium for 200 people. Currently the museum is owned by the Finnish Aviation Museum Foundation (Finnish: Suomen Ilmailumuseosäätiö), founded in 1996.



Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre

Heureka is a Finnish science center in Vantaa, Finland, north of Helsinki, designed by Heikkinen – Komonen Architects. The aim of the science centre, which opened its doors to the public in 1989, is to popularize scientific information and to develop the methods used to teach science and scientific concepts. The name ‘Heureka’ (eureka in English) refers to the Greek exclamation, presumably uttered by Archimedes, to mean “I’ve found it!” (made a discovery). The Science Centre Heureka features both indoor and outdoor interactive exhibitions with exhibits that enable visitors to independently test different concepts and ideas. There is also a digital planetarium with 135 seats.
