Hewelianum Centre situated on the Gradowa Hill Fort is a very special place. The modern science centre located in renovated XIX c. military building will interest not only children but parents too. We invite to visit 10 exhibitions, divided according to subjects.
“Around the World”
“Around the World” is an offer from geography science field, for those who are interested in the world. The magic journey starts inside the Earth, where We learn about the seismic movements of the earth and how the volcanos work. Further, We go through the colourful Asia, visiting different continents, to finish in Europe. This exhibition is so special that Discovery Channel took it under its patronage.
“With the Energy”
Several tens of stations were prepared in a way to enable the observations, to experiment and creation of different phenomenon. A very interesting offer is a station with the car simulation driving in difficult conditions. Specially prepared programs will let the driver use the car without getting into trouble. For those who are interested in planning We offer flood simulator. It depends on You if the village, built by You will be survive the flood or not.
At other exhibitions We can learn about the historical guns and try the different kinds of army uniforms and see which We like most. – the exhibition “Time Vehicle” , fun with the history. In the Laboratory of Mr. Kleks, there are four ferry tail parts waiting for us and the mathematical mystery will reveal new faces of the master of science. A special, interactive playground, which is a Jungle of Invagination is the place where children under the age 9 will not be bored for sure.
Right at the foot of Gradowa Mountain (being part of the fortifications) there is a park with a pond – a remnant of a moat once located here. You will also find three ecological sites here.
This is the first undertaking of its type in Europe, comprising military engineering facilities as a basis for the Centrum Odkrywania Wiedzy (the Knowledge Discovery Centre).
