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 University.

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.
