The Miniverse is Experimentarium’s new, adventurous science exhibition for our young visitors aged 1 to 5 and their parents.
The Miniverse is a unique new science exhibition developed by Experimentarium and designed especially for the youngest children aged 1 to 5 and their grown-ups.
The Miniverse is an adventurous world, where your child’s senses are tickled and the natural need to play is stimulated. The exhibition is a place full of play – and rather than an amusement park it is a safe place for the youngest to explore.
The Miniverse consists of seven unique areas, each inspiring to well-known games and play – and each with their unique science learning goals.
In ‘The Storm Construction’ you can build with big foam blocks. You are challenged by the forces of nature, and when the storm comes, it is important that you have made stable constructions. By also using trial and error, you try to build the most weather resistant structures.
Another area, ‘The Mirror Sea’, is a wonderful “underwater world’ where you explore strange mirror phenomena, where your reflections are turned upside down, are doubled or disappear.
In ‘The Hospital’, the teddy bears have bones in their body. Examining the bears gives your child an understanding of the skeleton. When you scan the bears in the x ray machine, you can see whether teddy has broken his arm or leg and find out where to put the bandage.
At ‘The Farm’ we harvest vegetables and fruit from the ground and get meat and eggs from the animals. Everything is sold in the farm shop and can be made into delicious food in the kitchen. Classical children’s play, that at the same time provides your child with maths and science understanding.
In the area called ‘The Wind’, you can’t actually see the wind, but you can feel it and experience how it pushes and moves things. Some things fly away easily with the wind, while other objects swirl along doing somersaults.
Will Fox find Mole? You can dress up and play hide-and-seek in ‘The Hideout’. And you can talk about food chains, predators and preys and the order of nature
It is always twilight in ‘The Shadow Forest’. Light and shadow play together while the sun is setting. Maybe it can be a little scary, but there’s also a nice camp fire where you can sit together and talk about how shadows only exist where there’s light and how these two things are closely connected.
Apart from the seven areas, the Miniverse also features cozy Reading Nooks, where you can be calm together and read the Miniverse-books with the fun characters from the Miniverse before you return for more active play, fun and experiences.
The Miniverse combines science with well-known games, such as hide-and-seek, construction game, sorting things and playing doctor.
That means that it is easy and safe for you and your child to get started and experience the different science topics in a playful way.
The fact that the games you play are well known makes it easier to take the Miniverse experience and the science behind it home with you.
One hour of play in the Miniverse inspires many hours of play at home.
And the next time you come the playing will be a new and even deeper experience.
On arriving in The Miniverse you’ll see that we have thought about the practical aspects of your visit so that it is a nice, clean and safe place to be for you and your child.
All areas are covered with soft carpets and outside shoes are put in ’The Arrival’ so that you play in slippers or socks.
Big brothers and sisters are allowed in The Miniverse as long as they are aware of the other visitors – and a grown up must always be present.
Baby carriages and strollers are parked outside The Miniverse in The Arrival area where you also can find the Nursing Room. You can eat your lunch and get fresh drinking water in the Food Park just outside The Miniverse.
