Southern Sweden » Balthazar Science Center

The modestly-sized Science Centre, with the big heart!
With over 20,000 visitors a year, Balthazar Science Centre is one of Skövde’s biggest crowd-pullers. Modestly sized, we look forward to welcoming you with a big heart. (Actually, we think we have the biggest heart in Sweden).

Here you will find a place that is full of challenges and exciting surprises created to arouse curiosity. People of all ages can play, explore, learn and have fun.

We are very easy to find thanks to our convenient location in Skövde close to the central coach and train station.

Arousing Curiosity
We offer a range of exciting “hands on” experiments and displays (some permanent, some temporary). New attractions for 2010/2011 include an interactive light/laser display and a human brain theme as a compliment to our popular heart theme. You can experiment with water (bubbles ARE fun!), visit our space room or, (in the summer), take part in our very successful “young person’s driving school”.

We are the only Science Centre to incorporate an innovative “English room” too. Here you can challenge the family with fun-based games and activities.

We feel sure you will enjoy the magic and fascination of science and technology. We are proud of our friendly and educated staff, of our exhibits and displays as well as of our “have a go” workshop and other activities that really do suit all ages. A great fun day out for ALL the family.
