Zinoo Riga had great reviews in Tripadvisor. So we decided to have a try as well. Family ticket to 2+2 was 23€ during weekend. It is little less during weekdays.

I've have similar kind of Science Center back home and we also have visited similar kind of places all across major European cities whenever those are available. This one is pretty ok but also pretty small. It's just one part of one floor in quite a compact shopping center. Comparing local prices to this it was a little expensive. Most of the visitors at the same time were tourists like we.

It's always nice to kids (ours 4 and 9 at the time of the visit) to touch and play with staff instead of hearing parents yelling 'do not touch' or 'do not cross the line'. They liked it but it was quite a quick stop. Not like Formula 1 style but less than expected with price of 23€.

Afterwards before writing our review I noted that 21 of 42 reviews of Zinoo Riga has been written by Tripadvisor member who has just one review and all those 21 are from Latvia and most of them from Riga. This is higher share than normally. I've been member of Tripadvisor since 2007 and I do not remember that I would have seen similar structure ever earlier.

This has got to be one of the places that will be etched in the memory of my kids in many days to come, the place is a beehive of activity with great subtle lessons for kids. Though there is no guide, I would recommend a guide for Zinoo. Get volunteer science students from nearby universities to make the experience priceless for kids. I loved it, the kids loved it and it is an all family play place.

We went with a 4.5 year old and a 2.5 year old. The space is not that large, however the activities are great - and it is very fun for everyone. I think my 4 year old understood the concept much more than my two year old. Overall, it was a great way for the kids to release a bit of energy and have fun.

I like the "please do touch" approach.
I also give cred for creating science experiments with simple means.
It could be improved by providing more signs and explanations in English.

Children’s science center's Zinoo goal is to unleash the curiosity about ourselves, environment and technologies. We believe that everyone has potential which has to be evolved.
Center offers:
to test the gravity by swinging;
to understand the friction by driving in special kartings;
to construct gear-boxes;
to see optical illusions;
to construct and operate robots.
Also try other of together 30 interactive exhibits.

For the youngest
The youngest visitors have an opportunity to play with VARIS and LEGO construction toys and to construct playthings with their own hands.

Great place for children and also adults to learn about the universe, it's physical laws and their principles and enjoy other more active activities like bouldering, interesting rides and florrball. Also must see are the illusionist and experiment shows! :)

I visited this place a couple of years ago and still happy to see it evolving! Great interactive experience for curious people of any age, although it's usually full with children.

They have all kinds of interactive installations, based on physics, which you can try yourself, for example, my favourite was machine with water which seemed to run upwards because of a light change. And the mirror labyrinth, everyone will love that.

Wish something like that was in Riga when I grew up :) Highly recommended!
