About
Tartu Nature House is a small green oasis in the middle of the city and also the home of Tartu Environmental Education Centre. The innovative and sustainably built house offers environmental education and activities for the whole family. At the heart of the centre is the winter garden where you'll find various useful plant species as well as tortoises. In the animal room, you can meet various furry and feathered pets. The centre always has many different nature-themed exhibitions on display, including a permanent exhibition, which looks at different sustainable building options and in the play corner, you can even ride a bike to generate electricity. A beautiful park surrounds the centre, where visitors can familiarise themselves with different educational paths, a beaver dam meant for humans, gardens, a viewing platform and children's play areas. It is also possible to buy nature friendly souvenirs and gifts and visit the house with the help of a guide.

Either summer or winter time, Tartu Nature House always welcomes the visitors with beautiful nature and natural products. They have educational programmes for children and adults, and you can also provide your new ideas of programmes! I have visited here every time I come to Tartu, Estonia from Tokyo, Japan and get relaxed to reflect my life.

Here in Loodusmaja is always exhibitions and advice about visiting Tartu and nature in this beautiful part of Estonia. The house it self is a nice experience and example at one sustainable building with a nice indoor garden.

A well rounded and attractive place. Really sets the bar for other initiatives on the same subject. I wish to see one of these in every city of the world. Many schools or NGO's that focus on sustainability literacy have a hard time bringing their practices to fit modern requirements. This school gives you a clear solid idea of what it could mean to build with smarter practices TODAY. The greenhouse reminded me of Costa Rica. :D

Nice place for children to get information about nature in Estonia. This house is really nice itself with small park. I got some new information about beaver here. It seems to be lovely for locals
