The special exhibition

Your team spirit is wanted in this diverse special exhibition. You can actively work together at the various interactive stations and learn what is good for your brain.

A portable brain accompanies you through the exhibition. Use it to activate the individual stations. The more stations you visit, the more intensely the brain glows – as a sign that your own brain is profiting from your visit to the exhibition!

HEAD first

» You're not just a head! You're a fingertip, shoulder-top, tip of the tongue, top of the lung, and it's all tip-top! «

Poem from the exhibition, original by Laura Ruohonen, translated into English by Outi Kainulainen.

The Cosmos of the Brain

A cosmos full of wonder is hidden in our head - our brain. It is one of the most complex structures we know. Around 86 billion nerve cells are connected in a gigantic network. It still holds many secrets even today.

Set out on an adventure with friends and family and discover the astounding capabilities of your brain in this exhibition!

Dancing, music, crafts and puzzles form new connections in your brain. Social gatherings make you happy. But the brain needs variety above anything else! In addition to physical and mental activity, it also needs periods of rest. But it is never inactive! The brain works tirelessly at full throttle even when you are asleep. A number of stations in the exhibition let you directly experience what your brain needs. And if you'd like to learn more about how you can shape, challenge and protect your brain, visit the wisdom tables. You can find out more about your brain there.
