Universeum Science Discovery Centre is a family park located in centre in Gothenburg, Sweden, right next to Liseberg theme park.
The concept beyond Universeum is somewhere in between a natural museum, a science show and a kids playhouse.
Inaugurated in 2001 the building created by architect Gert Wingårdh has seven floors with animals, experiments and games.
The aquariums are some of the largest in Europe and you also find exciting exhibitions – when we visit in June 2014 there were a Dinousaurs exhibit on the top of the building – and an indoor rainforest, where birds, butterflies, lizards, sloths and monkeys move around freely. There is also an impressing collection of local sea fauna on the top floor, followed by a perfectly maintained aquarium and an impressive descend through a rain forest with artificial climate and free running monkeys and birds! Exciting stuff!.
Apart from that there was an exposition about swedish space efforts and a very large space of experiments and little games kids (and adults) can try out and learn more about.
You could visit the place in about 2-3 hours. The building is packed with young couples with children and babies so sometimes can be difficult to circulate even in a lesser crowded day.
Fun, interesting and a lot to learn for all ages.
