Today, even an idea can go VIRAL.

VIRAL is an interactive exhibition that explores what contagion is and how it works, revealing biological and social phenomena and examining its impact on our lives.

The exhibition has 24 exhibits, divided into five areas. In each area, visitors explore contagion through a narrative that covers a variety of phenomena, including biology, epidemiology and public health, network science, psychology and social sciences. More than just an exhibition, VIRAL is a positive, fun and contagious experience!

VIRAL was considered by the Exploratorium of San Francisco and by the Center for Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE) as one of the notable exhibitions of 2016.

Visit the exhibition until the 27th of September 2018 in Heureka, Helsínquia.


VIRAL was created by the Pavilion of Knowledge - Centro Ciência Viva in cooperation with Cité des Sciences et de l´Industrie, in Paris, France, and Heureka, in Helsinki, Finland.
