The science centre in Arendal is great fun for the whole family. Test, design, build and experiment with science.
Fun for the whole family at the Science Center! Open all year, at the pier in Arendal.
Our exhibition is now twice as big and filled with exciting experiments and interactive installations you can try out, for example "The maritime world", "Energy in the environment" and "Numbers are everywhere". You can run in the hamster wheel, lift yourself off the ground, test yourself to see if you are "King of the trash heap" or an "environmental pig".
For the youngest children there is an activity room called Pythagoras with a climbing wall, fish pond and other educational activities.
At weekends and during school holidays there is a varying program. Come along on a spectacular trip into space with 3D, create your own slime, compete in car jumping or what with a exciting encounter with Pythagoras.
See our website for today's program!
