Energy Discovery Centre
The Energy Discovery Centre is a science centre based in the former Tallinn power plant that seeks to motivate children to study science. In order to achieve this, the Centre has over one hundred exhibits, which allow kids to safely study and test physical phenomena. It’s very important for us that our visitors can discover the surrounding environment themselves.
We also offer schools the opportunity to diversify their science classes – the Centre’s programme includes many workshops. The unique environment of the old and imposing power plant is an ideal place to explain how electricity works and how it is generated.
The Energy Discover Centre is run by SA Tallinna Tehnika- ja Teaduskeskus (The Tallinn Technology and Science Centre Foundation), which was established in 1999 by the City of Tallinn, Tallinn University of Technology, Eesti Energia AS and AS Tallinna Soojus. For the first ten years the name of the organisation managed by the foundation in the old power plant was the Energy Centre, in 2009 it was renamed the Energy Discovery Centre. The Centre’s renovation project started in 2012 and the new Energy Discovery Centre opened its doors to visitors on 13 June 2014.
Energy Discovery Centre is a member of the Nordic Science Centre Association and Ecsite, the European Network of Science Centres and Museums. For information about international projects the Centre’s involved in, please see the page European Projects on this site.
