Vattenhallen Science Centre is open on weekdays, school classes and other groups come to try out various experiments with a focus on science and engineering. In the experiment hall, you can get inside a giant soap bubble, test different sounds, or shoot protons and tickle electrons.

At weekends and during school holidays, Vattenhallen is open to the public. There are shows and visitors also have the opportunity to do experiments and try various construction kits.

For opening hours please see our homepage.

Vattenhallen also helps organise different events, lectures and children’s parties.

The Planetarium in Lund

The Faculty of Science planetarium was reopened in its current location at Vattenhallen Science Center in 2010. In summer 2012, new digital equipment was installed that gives the visitor a sense of flying out into the Universe and visiting planets and galaxies.

We went to Vattenhallen with our boys, aged 8 and 10, and apart from Skånetrafiken (local bus service) utterly letting us down, when we finally arrived the boys had a fun time for about ten minutes... lots of the experiments weren't working (either access was blocked entirely, ex to the mouth, or 'spare parts' were missing), and the instructions and...

Vattenhallen is just a great GREAT institution. It is run by students who largely work for free and is a fantastic place to visit with your family and kids. But it actually also works well as a kick of for a school class. All in all I only have good things to say about this place.

Lund is known for its very old university. Its Vattenhallen science centre in LTH building is very popular among locals specially the kids. They have science exhibits and a MRI scan machine to try and learn about. You learn quite a bit if you visit and not in the science field but most of the language used is only Swedish.... More

This is a really special place at the LTH facility of Lund University. Basically it is in place to help motivate younger children to take an interest in science. Students from the university work there and give shorter shows and lectures on different parts of science. It is a very nice experience and relatively cheap and the money you do... More

Very small exhibition with a few experiments. Maybe interesting for older kids (10+). All descriptions and instructions in Swedish only.

Went here a bit hesitant as a part of a birthday-celebration. Ended up having a really good time! The place is full of interesting information and fun little experiments to do, for all ages! Even the science-show was great even for an adult like me! Well worth a visit on a gloomy saturday afternoon.
