Families come here to play, compete, laugh, work together, and ponder over connections and phenomena. 
Vitensenter Innlandet offers many varied activities for both young and old:  Come into the planetarium and travel out into space, try the many installations in the energy room and experience the human body area.  Puzzle away in the maths room and get hands on in the agricultural area.
