Our family visited Ice Age Centre in Tartu with 4 year toddler. At the entry we've been worned that on 12:00 all lights will be off, they will give us flashlights and something interesting shall happen. As a result flashlights were too few and we were in the dark centre with estonian speaking guide telling something to other visitors for 40 minutes!!! I think that we could spend 40 minutes of our life in a much more interesting way.

Nice place to see how things shaped our earth and see some animals lived and living right now.
Maybe target audience is a bit older than our 3 and 5 year-olds. They had fun to look around all animal taxidermy but had no interest to learn more by reading all interesting information written in descriptions.

This a fantastic place!! The interactive displays are very good and the video clips of traditional Estonian lifestyles are alos very good. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to those who enjoy well displayed educational museums.

Not sure which audience the Ice Age Centre is aimed at. The text panels are very wordy and technical so are clearly not designed for children and families. Good display using natural history specimens illustrating climate change but overall a bit of a miss for me.
