WELCOME TO CURIOSUM (former Sliperiet)
In April 2019, Sliperiet changed it´s name to Curiosum and
merged with the science center Umevatoriet. This autumn we will
take the next step. and together with our tenants move into the
renewed premises of Sliperiet at Arts Campus at Umeå
In 2020 Curiosum will open. A new science center, to inspire
young and old with science and technology. We believe curiosity can
change the world.
Look out for our new website coming soon!
Wisdome will make Sliperiet a world-class learning center
Umevatoriet will be merged with Sliperiet, and a new
dome theater will be built at Sliperiet in 2019. The initiative is
possible through Umevatoriet's participation in the national
Wisdome initiative - a project investing in
leading visualisation technology and digital learning.
In the Wisdome initiative, five leading science centers in
Sweden have joined forces to establish advanced visualization dome
theatres and connected interactive learning environments. The
project is funded through a donation of SEK 150 million from the
Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
