The Eureka Zientzia Museoa (Eureka Science Museum), which is part of the kutxa savings bank’s social outreach programme, is a cultural and educational resource at the service of our society.
Located in the Miramón technology park in Donostia-San Sebastian in an outstanding natural setting, the Eureka Zientzia Museoa is an interactive museum in which the information is attractively presented with a fresh style of communication through a hands-on approach and experiments.
The Eureka Zientzia Museoa aims to provide a stimulating environment for participating in activities linked to the world of science and technology. It is a centre for promoting science for all ages, a way to complement school programmes focusing on scientific principles, and a leisure-time resource for the personal development of both families and individuals.
The centre has a permanent exhibition: HIPATIA, where visitors can go on a tour of different fields of science through the 160 or more interactive sections divided into 8 theme rooms.
Its state-of-the-art PLANETARIUM capable of seating 142 is a very useful tool for teaching astronomy and for offering immersive cinema entertainment.
The Eureka Zientzia Museoa also has an astronomy observatory located on top of a 3-metre high tower, a Foucault pendulum inside a 14-metre high glass tower, in addition to a great variety of organised events and shows featuring the Electricity Spectacle, unique in Spain. There is also a fun area which can surprise the visitor with its Roller Coaster simulators.
The gardens outside feature a set of scale model heritage buildings of Gipuzkoa as well as a mini botanical garden.
