  • 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...  more »

  • 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.
  • You dont know how ice age was but there you will learn, very educating

Where to stay in Tartu

As a university town, Tartu can get rowdy in the evenings. To ensure a quiet night's stay, look for more economical lodging outside of the center. That said, if you want to be in the thick of the nightlife, the center itself has quite a few budget accommodations catering to the youthful population. Unfortunately, this also means that those looking for luxury hotels in this area may be more hard-pressed. The most populous neighborhood in the city is Annelinn, bordering the Emajogi River, where you will find a variety of accommodations. Alternatively, Kesklinn, a smaller quarter, has plenty of mid-range hotels and budget guesthouses.
