Tietomaa is a science centre in Oulu. There is about 200 exhibitions showing history of great inventions, astronomy, history of sports and the idea is that people can try things, not just watch.

Price isn't much and with that you can try everything there and see movie. Price is for kids and elder 10 euros and 13 for adults.

Second floor includes exhibitons about illusions and In Motion -exhibitions for kids (mostly). Third floor includes parts showing history of inventions, exhibitons about light and different kind of testes. Testes part will change to Gravity-exhibition on October 2008. 4th floor is for sports. There is also tower where you can go with glass lift and on the way down (with stairs) you can visit Astronomy exhibition and hologram gallery. There is also movie theatre with Finland's largest screen.

My favourite there is usually the movie. It is about 40 minutes and changes yearly. In 2008 it is about Dinosaurs. Dinosaurs movie wasn't so good than other I have seen there (I have visited there many times before), but it was worth of seeing too. Other things that I liked the most were test where you put one device infront of your eyes and try to walk on track and couple games in sport-exhibition. I have to say that curling looks easy on tv, but it isn't really (tried it on Tietomaa).

Tietomaa is mostly for kids, but it is fun for older people too. It is fun way to learn. :)
