  • The city of Tartu is not very rich in interesting places for children. And this museum-just super! Spent 3 hours there. Examined all the exhibits! Played in the interactive game-"search drops". Unfortunately this is the only game in the Russian language. The children were delighted by the caves of ancient people. Liked the fact that many of the exhibits you can touch, spinning, pressing. In General a solid interactive!)) Adults too;) was interesting. The place is very beautiful. The Lake is large and clean. I think go there once again in the summer, because in Tartu are often.

  • Interesting museum for little and bigger children. There is very flexible staff: we came too early and they let us to come in. Thank you  more »
  • Three-story popular Science Museum "Jääaja keskus (" Center of glacial period ") will be interesting for both children and adults. Modern technology and installation of colorful and fun will tell about the ice ages on Earth and changes of its inhabitants over the last couple of million years. Special attention is paid to the issues of ecology and environmental consciousness. All information (as well as video and audio content) in addition to the basic language, Estonian, duplicated on very good Russian and English languages. Very good transport accessibility-if no own transport, going to the public-from the bus station in Tartu in 12:30 with 5 apron bus. Our stop-"keskus shopping centre". The full cost of the ticket-1 euro (back 1.05 euros). Preschool children go free. Journey time is OK. 30 minutes (slightly longer back-route roundabout). Ticket prices-8 euros for adults and 5 euros for children. There is a café with a terrace and views of the picturesque Lake Saadjärv, on the banks of which the Museum is located. In 200 metres to the left along the shore (if you look at the Lake) is a well maintained public beach with comfortable stepping into water for small children. Buses in reverse 16:00 (KR. Sunday), 17:00 and 18:35. Note: data for August 2017 year schedule varies with the seasons, so always check out everything in advance. In addition to the Museum and the beach, children may be interesting exposition boulders open-air remnants of will be spent for their study and conquest. I wish you a pleasant holiday with the kids!

  • Excellent place for family with small children both in summer and winter time! Nice and interesting exhibitions. Not so many but not so exhausting though! Recommend!
  • Cetre was great! Everything was clean and clearly laid out. Exhibitions was interesting and informative. I can recommend to all ages!
  • We like to be there. Just some of the interactivity was out of order. Hopefully will be fixed soon. 😉
  • ...the Ice Age Centre (Jääaja Keskus) is worth visiting at least once, it's well organised and although there is an entry fee to the visit the centre the parking is free and very accessible....there's a small cafe too......Actually our favourite part of the centre is the Lake right next to it which is beautiful......Lake Saadjärv is a favourite with locals in the summer, for swimming, water sports, fishing and sailing....the lake has many moods depending on time of day or season and it's accessible from various places not just next to the Jääaja Keskus.........Enjoy! ~ : )
  • A bit expensive. But little kiddo liked there. Mamooth and tiger were great! Could be nice to visit in hot summer day because the museum is next to beautiful lake.
