I stepped in just because this was one of the very few museums open on Monday, so I didn't expect too much. Turned out it's greater than I thought. Many interesting displays about physics, plus history of the old Tallinn city power plant, which is...More

Excellent. Loads of hands-on exhibits and 99% of them actually worked (I've had previous experience of similar places where many were out of order). The 500 kV lightning demonstration was awesome. The kids loved the place and so did mom. Stayed there for almost three...More

If you are in to science this is the place to be. There are a lot of interactive exhibits and you won't get bored of them. There are also live shows at various hours. For us it was a great place to visit and shouldn't...More

The most I like that it is not an usual museum, you can really put your hands on and discover new things. But at the same time I cannot call it as a science centre cause there are lots of old exhibits, poor planetarium.

We visited this place with high expectations but we didnt like the place.It was boring, too expensive. We tried everything but nothing special. Maybe when you are first time in science centre then you could like it.

Good for different children's age. Attractive and dynamic expositions. One day is more than engulf. It is good that you can go in and out during the day.

The 5-year old had a really nice time at this place, trying everything she could see. We were a couple of grown ups who joined in on the fun and all had a pretty good time for a little more than 1.5 hours. It was...More
