and tickets

Welcome to the Nordic region’s largest Science Centre! Universeum is open every day of the year – including Christmas Eve.


At Universeum every day is an adventure. Our big building in the heart of Gothenburg brings together animals, nature, technology and masses of experiments. In just one day you can go on safari in the rainforest, head out into space, dive into the depths of the world’s oceans and walk through the Swedish wilderness.


Apologies for the upheaval in the Rainforest!

Starting on 16 November, we are renovating the Rainforest. 8 June 2016 is the première for Universeum’s new rainforest! We apologise if it might be a little inconvenient for you as a visitor and for everything not being open as usual.

Level 4 at the top of the Rainforest and the stairs down to level 3 are open throughout the whole construction period. There are entrances to the Rainforest on level 4 from the Ocean Zone and on level 3 from the stairwell via the airlock. Some animals from the Rainforest are moving temporarily to Water’s Way and Deadly Beauties.
