Nice place in overall, interesting attractions and activities , mostly oriented for kids/teenagers, however adults also will find something to do here. Museum itself is not so big as I've expected, but still not too small as well, it may be a bit difficult to navigate while more people as despite attraction grouped by themes some random ones are popped in between here and there. Also be prepared for reading as most of attraction require this to get most from them, you can poke around as it is but not always you get outcome desired. Attraction usually have instructions nearby in several languages, English included. Planetarium is OK, interesting but if you've been in similar venues it will not overwhelm you. So you can easily spent 2-3 hours there , probably more if you want to participate in science theater of lab activities.

AHHAA Centre is one of the main reason for my family to visit Tartu every year. Great interactive exposition that makes adults to become children again. So many things to do: ride the bicycle under the roof, visit weird rooms and labyrinths, open a large ball with your own weight. Highly recommended!!!

Us two adults went for the very first time and I gotta say we didn't expect to get stuck in there for 4 hours with so much still to see! You'll need way more time to experience all :) We loved it and had lots of fun learning new things and also reconnecting to our inner-child. The range of exhibitions and stuff to do was wide and the info about things was plentyful. This is a place for discovering through trying stuff out not just looking or reading, which was really cool. There were enough options to desinfect hands at every step also. Great place, hoping to visit again next year!

Even though our teenagers did enjoy some of the gadgetd, they felt that perhaps smaller kids will find them more interesting. Much is like in any other science center. In the 2nd floor there is however a bizarrre exhibition of anatomy featuring foetuses and dried limbs... not for the faint-hearted!

One of the Estonian attraction numbers for families with children.
Fortunately, it is constantly renewed, so you can still find something new every year.
Unfortunately, I haven't got to the planetarium yet, it's definitely interesting.
The location is very good. Definitely worth the price.

Very interesting place where it's possible to learn lot of things. It seems a place more useful to kids. They will be really excited to "play" and learn.

Price is not so high, 15 euros for adult. But the ticket is valid for 1 day. So you have time to see without hurry.

It's not far to center town, but anyway well connected by bus

So much to do and explore, for both young and old.

A fantastic place to spend many hours. It is great to see somewhere that makes science fun and accessible. Great explanations and well thought out interactive exhibits.

Just perfect. Enjoyable for small children and parents. Very good selection and variety of interactive and engaging experiments. All very well presented, clean and well maintained. Spent all day and went back in evening. Best of any similar place we visited in other countries/cities.
