In the center of Gdańsk there is Hevelianum – a modern center of science, education and culture. Hevelianum is the first such venture in Europe, where historic military engineering objects form the basis for the Knowledge Discovery Center.
Historic objects located on the vast area of the former military fort house five interactive exhibitions, a mobile planetarium, a modern conference space and a beautiful recreation and park area with two viewpoints.
The name of the Center refers to the great Gdańsk scientist, Jan Haweliusz. It was his activity, creation and achievements that inspired to create a multitasking center. The place where art and science, education and culture intermingle, and ecology and recreation are the background of all this.
Havelanium is an important point on the tourist map of Gdańsk. Discovering and learning through play and independent experimentation are nowadays a recognized direction of innovative education. The Center is very popular among tourists and locals.
