About
We invite you to our brand new exhibition "Aha, Senses!" Feel if you dare! For the first time ever, our traditional exhibition hall has been transformed into a complete playground for the senses. In a unique, dimly lit environment, we will amplify all your senses so that every little experience will be an adventure in itself. After your visit, trust in your ears, eyes and fingers can take on a whole new meaning. A perfect place for a family holiday, AHHAA is the biggest science centre in Estonia and the Baltic states, located in Tartu. Physics, chemistry, biology and technology have never been made so simple and fun. In addition to three large exhibition halls, you're welcome to our workshops, science theatre shows and one-of-a-kind fully spherical planetarium. AHHAA is open 363 days a year, which means you're always welcome to visit us!

    Science in hands
    Very attractive museum. Things to do with preschool children and for adults. As the museum isn't very big, it is compact in size and no worries for children to lose. Everything you can touch, feel, and experience. Better to come on opening hours as then would be fewer visitors. Also cafe in the museum is reasonable and good to eat with children.
    We´re glad that you liked your visit. Thank you so much for the review.

    Would return!
    This place was excellent for 9, 13 and 44 years old! We enjoyed so much the whole experience. There was so much to do, to see. And we liked the fact that during the same day you can return. If we had known, we would have visited twice the same day! It was well worth the money!
    Thank you very much for Your kind words :)

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I really liked that place and the new exhibition about dinosaurs, but also it was kind of boring. This place is great for younger kids.

More kids focused, but nevertheless fun for adults too. A lot of fun and weird stuff to play with. There are various optical illusions stands, physics-based stands and anatomy related stands to visit. Great cafeteria inside!

Discovery and testing was divided into several hours. Our family's favorites were the ball track in the water and the mind exhibition.

Great modern place to spend time with kids. So many things to do. Can become part of the experiment yourself. This will help children understand how the world works. Can taste lunch in AHHAA cafeteria.

The centres is so impressive! Alot to do and explorer with some nice hands on and practical experiments to do yourself. There's a really impressive planetary to discover the starts and beyond. If you get a chance, I'd also visit the theater where the staff will do some crazy experiments! The staff aswell were welcoming and helpful. Most spoke English so there wasn't a language barrier. Even the exhibits have English so you will always know what's going on.
10/10 would definitely recommend going.
