  • We are in the center regularly, as children grow up. And we always find something new and interesting. Children always liked (and when they were 7 years old, and when, at the moment they are 14). The exhibits change, something new appears. For the first time visited the planetarium at the center. Booked tickets in advance online from Russia (chose a session in the Russian language). Tickets to the planetarium were received at the checkout when they bought the entrance. It turned out cheaper in the complex.

  • Rain escaped to the science centre with some of the Meresaurus theme. The Science centre-the name does not exactly tell the nature of the place, but it was time spent. For families with children it is certainly a matchless day destination.

  • Absolutely amazing! Well done Estonia for creating such an interesting, interactive, educational centre! So much fun for young and old! Love that there were 4 languages (including Latvian) in all descriptions and explanations. The kids loved it! Allow about 3-4 hours (we didn’t do the Planiterium). We went on a Monday afternoon and had the place to ourselves - utterly enjoyed it!
  • Honestly, it's just okay. There are a couple of really interesting things that you can do or see like the maze of mirrors, air bicycle, heart beat drum etc. But half of it is pretty meh and meant for kids mostly. I recommend a different, more modern way to convey information. So generally it's good for kids and okay for adult and a tad too expensive.
