Universeum is located in the heart of Gothenburg and is Scandinavia's largest science centre. Throughout its seven floors you can experience a tropical rainforest, huge aquariums and lots of exciting experiments – on your own or with the Universeum guides.
Explore the Swedish wilderness with its fish and birds, visit our sharks and rays and step into a space station. You can also see snakes and other poisonous animals, go on a rainforest safari among monkeys, sloths and caimans, learn how nature has inspired new technologies, let really young children try out their dream jobs at Job Land, try your hand at chemistry in the Chemistry lab and a whole lot more.
At the exhibition Space you’ll learn about the earth, the moon, Mars, the solar system and space travel. How long is a day on Mars and how does a toilet in space work? Find out at Universeum’s latest addition while experiencing life in space.
Experience the exotic birds, sloths, monkeys, frogs, butterflies and other known and unknown animals. Hike through the rain cave and explore everything from the thriving canyon up to the rainforest canopy.
Guides, animal keepers and divers make sure there are plenty of fun happening every day at Universeum science centre. See the website for programme events.
Through the sixteen meters long and four meters high panorama screen you can see the fish that live in the North sea and along the Swedish coast.
1.4 million litres. That’s how much water there is in Universeum’s biggest aquarium, The Ocean. When you enter the tunnel that runs through the aquarium, you can view the fish from below and get a feel for what it would be like to be right in there among them. This is where the sharks and rays live. Plus a host of clownfish and other colourful small residents of the coral reef. There’s also a large sawfish, whose eye-catching nose extension you just can’t miss.
Many of the snakes in the reptile exhibition at Universeum are among the most venomous animals on the planet, as well as among the most rare and endangered spieces. Here you can get really close to them and also learn about important discoveries in technology, physics, chemistry and medicin where reptiles hade played an essential part.
Everything is made from chemical compounds and everything, even our thoughts, is a chemical process. Put on a lab coat and safety goggles, pick up a pipette and explore the magic of chemistry in the Chemistry Lab, just like a real chemist.
