AHHAA was established as a special project of the Department of Research and Institutional Development of the University of Tartu (founded in 1632). AHHAA started its activities with a laser show in front of Tartu Observatory on September 1, 1997, and has had a strong and stable development ever since. The purpose of AHHAA is to introduce science to everyone. Using interactive and entertaining methods and the scientific excellence of 370-year old Tartu University, we try to overcome fear and prejudice towards learning. With the support of Tartu’s educational traditions and latest developments of information society, we hope to provide every visitor with the joy of gaining new knowledge and pleasant pastime activities. In 2011 AHHAA opened ist new building in the city centre. AHHAA has been selected as the best Estonian Tourism Attraction of the year 2011. In addition to that, we also have a 4D Experience Cinema in Lõunakeskus Shopping Centre in Tartu and a 4D Experience Capsule in Tallinn.
