I am standing in a huge room filled with all kinds of small educative games, in front of me, I can see the exhibition with small wooden puppets. The whole open space looks like a big playground. Here, everybody can play and learn all day long. Vida science center celebrates third birthday. People celebrate it too, enjoying smart fun in one hundred and seventy interactive expositions divided in four section - Planet, Civilization, Human and Microworld. Vida! center is one of the most visited tourist destination in South Moravia.  If I would be a child, I would probably feel like i heaven.

I am standing in a huge room filled with all kinds of small educative games, in front of me, I can see the exhibition with small wooden puppets. On the left, I see something like luminous photography. After few seconds, I found out, that it is not a photo, but people try to freeze their shadow. The whole open space looks like a big playground. Here, everybody can play and learn all day long. Vida science center celebrates third birthday. People celebrate it too, enjoying smart fun in one hundred and seventy interactive expositions divided in four section - Planet, Civilization, Human and Microworld. Vida! center is one of the most visited tourist destination in South Moravia.  If I would be a child, I would probably feel like i heaven.

Entering the VIDA! center I notice, there is unused big space around the whole complex of VIDA! But in the future, people can look forward to the outdoor exposure. According to the manager of the exposure Ondřej Hloušan, people could enjoy the first outdoor part, which will contain mostly natural elements, next autumn. In other four years, outdoor exposure could surround the whole science center. “The outdoor exposition will be open every year during the summer months. It should be a rest zone for visitors, a counterpoint to a bit dark and noisy interior,” says Hloušan.

Look (Vida!), I didn´t know that. That is the sentence, you will probably say again and again in Vida science center placed near Brno Exhibition Center. No matter, you are an adult or a child. In a huge dark open space with many artificial lights, sounds of child laugh, songs from the radio and loud joy shout resonate in my ears. I can´t decide where I should go first, then I see huge replica of human heart and I am going there.

On a way there, I decide to practice my reflexes. I take off my shoes, and on the floor I try to catch moving red square between white ones. I´m continue my visit in a part of Human being. In one moment, I see the world like a fly, in the other like a dog or a person with green turbidity, which feels like I put very dirty glasses. “This is my favourite atraction,” says one of the visitor Barbora Ficbauerová showing at the rotating roller. “You get in a roller and you try to throw the ball on the basket. I only hit one, but it was really fun,” says Barbora Ficbauerová, one of seven hundreds thousands people who visited Vida! during three years of existence.

Over eighty decibels, that´s the power of my voice. In a small booth testing the loudness, I found out, I can shout that loud. Starting to be a little bit tired of all attraction, my next steps lead to the Theatre of science. In repertoire of VIDA!, there is the new show in occasion of two hundred anniversary of the invention of the bicycle. In half an hour Aleš Pilgner and Roman Štěpánek, show to people some of the phenomena thanks to which we can ride a bike. “We like to show to people physical phenomena, we face in everyday life. A bicycle is an ideal means of doing this,” says one of the creator of the show Aleš Pilgner.

After small rest in the theatre, I am ready to explore more attraction of VIDA! I resist the temptation to slip on the slide, where the children´s queue stands and in a section of Planet, I look at the model of tornado. Thanks to this small version of tornado, people can very well imagine how powerful the real tornado can be.  After, standing next to green screen and trying, what is it like to be a weather announcer on the TV, I am finishing my visit in VIDA!
