Must visit when in Tartu
May 2021
When you visit Ahhaa, you can be sure to get this "AHHAA" experience there. Great place and always good to go back. The center offers so much fun for both children and adults.

Mandatory for families with children
Aug 2021
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.

Fun to visit and explore around
Aug 2021
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.

Must-see in Tartu
Oct 2020
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!!!

Reconnect with your inner child and learn about our world while having fun!
Dec 2020 • Friends
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!

One of the best science museums I've been to
Aug 2020
One of the best science museums I've ever been to! Amusing for both children and adults, everything is interactive, we spend around 2 hours there and had a great time. The section exploring fears was the best! If you are visiting Tartu, this museum is a must :)

Very interesting visit
Aug 2020
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
