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.

outstanding experience

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

feeling we are a part of nature

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.
