Welcome to Universeum

bubbla_program_GBWelcome 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. Welcome!


Get close to the animals

With us you can get right up close. Feel the birds swoop past, touch the rough skin of the ray, stand centimetres from poisonous snakes and stroke a lizard.

Build and create

Discover how cool technology can be at Teknoteket. Make your own doodlebots and instruments, experiment with electrical circuits or build with blocks and marble runs!

A world in blue

Experience hundreds of fish, sharks and rays. Our aquariums are some of Europe’s largest. Let’s dive!

Play and learn

We mix play with knowledge. Jump, create, experiment, climb and have fun, and learn something new at the same time!

A whole rainforest

Butterflies, toucans, a hairy giant spider, caimans, monkeys,  frogs and many other exciting animals in 18,000 m3 of green rainforest. Enjoy the warmth!
