The Miniverse is Experimentarium’s adventurous science exhibition for our young visitors aged 1 to 5 years and their grown-ups.
The Miniverse is a unique science exhibition developed by Experimentarium and designed especially for the youngest children aged 1 to 5 years 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 a safe place for the youngest to explore.
The Miniverse consists of seven areas, each with their distinct character, and inspired by the way children play. Each area also have a unique set of science learning goals.
In ‘The Storm Construction’ you build with large foam blocks. You are challenged by the “forces of nature”, and when the storm comes, it is important that you have made a stable construction. 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 will explore strange mirror phenomena, in which your reflections are turned upside down, are doubled or even disappear.
In ‘The Hospital’, the teddy bears all have skeletons and unfortunately they also have a broken bone and are in need of some TLC. Examining the bears gives your child an understanding of the skeleton. When you scan the bears in the X-ray machine, you can see if teddy has broken an arm or a leg and work together to find out where you should 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 transformed into “delicious food” in the kitchen. Classical children’s play, which, at the same time, provides your child with a basic understanding of maths and agriculture.
In the area called ‘The Wind’, you cannot actually see the wind. But you can feel it and experience how it pushes and moves things. Some objects 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 also talk about food chains, predators and prey and the order of nature.
It is always twilight in ‘The Shadow Forest’. Light and shadow interacts as the sun is setting. It may seem a little scary, but by discovering that you don’t have to be afraid fills young hearts with power. There is a nice camp fire, where you can sit together and talk about how shadows only exist where there is light and how these two elements are closely connected.
Apart from the seven areas, the Miniverse also features cozy reading nooks, where you can enjoy a time-out from exploring and read the special Miniverse books populated by the the fun characters from the Miniverse, before you proceed with more active play, fun and experiences.
The Miniverse combines science with classic children’s games, such as hide-and-seek, construction game, sorting items and playing doctor.
It is therefore easy for you and your child to get started and experience the different science topics in a playful way.
When you arrive in The Miniverse, you will notice that we have thought about all the practical aspects of your visit. You will be met with a comfortable, clean and safe place to explore together.
All areas are covered with soft carpets and outside shoes must be placed in ’The Arrival’ zone so that you only play in slippers or socks.
Older siblings are allowed in The Miniverse as long as they behave respectfully and mind the other visitors. A grown-up must always be present and children may not visit The Miniverse unaccompanied by a grown-up.
Baby carriages and strollers are parked outside The Miniverse in ‘The Arrival’ zone, where you will also find a nursing room with a microwave oven to prepare formula. You are most welcome to have your lunch and to fetch fresh drinking water in the ‘Food Park’ just outside The Miniverse.
