The Eureka Zientzia Museoa (Eureka Science Museum), which is part of the kutxa savings bank’s Benevolent Work, 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 accompanied by the carrying out of experiments. The Eureka Zientzia Museoa aims to provide a stimulating environment for participating in activities linked to the world of science and technology. It could be defined as a centre for popularizing science which is accessible to all ages, as a complement to educational programmes for the understanding of scientific principles, and as a resource for families and individuals for their leisure time geared towards their personal development.
The centre has a permanent exhibition: HIPATIA, where visitors can go on a tour of different fields of science through the 169 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 screenings of immersive cinema on a lighter side. 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 the Spanish State. There is also a fun area which can surprise the visitor with its Roller Coaster, F1 or flying simulators.
In the gardens outside it is possible to take a look at a complex of scale models of heritage buildings of Gipuzkoa as well as a mini botanical garden.
In addition, Kutxa's Social Work has made the following services available for visitors: free parking area, café and restaurant, shop, children’s playground, ticket offices and picnic area.
