Ahhaa Centre suits well children who are old enough to understand physical phenomena. They don't have to understand the theory behind it, level of understanding that water flows down and it with it's power you can turn a wheel is sufficient.

Great spot in Tartu for families. Lots of interesting interactive exhibits and learning experiences. Not as big as Helsinki's Heureka but similar in spirit and creativity.

A lot of fun science attractions and some of the exhibition is changed every once in a while so it's even fun if you go a couple of times. There are science shows after every couple of hours which are definitely worth seeing.
