An exhibition that is truly good for the brain!

By Heli Ainoa

Heureka’s newest travelling exhibition, Mind Your Brain! features many ways to take good care of your brain. The brain benefits from us using it; for example, brisk exercise, music, dance and crafts are proven to be good for the brain. The exhibition provides tips for a brain-friendly life and inspires visitors to be more active. 

At the exhibition, everyone can find ways to take good care of their brain. Mind Your Brain! exhibition reminds us that we can affect how our brain is shaped. The exhibition consists of games and exercises for groups of two to five people that challenge the brain. Cooperation and interaction with others are particularly important for the development of the human brain.

At the exhibition, visitors can exercise, relax, engage in arts and crafts, play in a band and try some of the most popular dances of all time. Brain puzzles, emotions, the senses and the significance of sleep for the brain are also featured – and the importance of laughter! In addition, the exhibition provides information about the circulatory system and its vital importance for the brain, the structure and functions of the brain and the incredible ways in which our brains evolve throughout our lives.

Our brains change throughout our lives and only get better by use. In this exhibition, you will literally mind your brain and learn how to look after it.

The exhibition is organised in cooperation with the Finnish Brain Association.


Mind Your Brain! is open in Heureka until 20 SEPTEMBER 2020.
