World's best exhibits meet actual nuclear science! Spin on the life-size hamster wheel and human gyroscope and find out how the best particles of the world are being bounced at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research

AHHAA's new exhibition has two parts

  • First: the exhibits that we've always wanted to bring to AHHAA, to show how electricity functions, how it makes the machines work and what to do with it anyway. Find out how really big machines, such as CERN's Large Hadron Collider work. You can also spin on the life-size hamster wheel and human gyroscope and observe the magnetical figures. Even the youngest science fans will have lots of fun!
  • Second: you'll find out what the scientists do at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. By the way, next spring Estonia will be a member of CERN as well, so it's the perfect time to visit AHHAA and find out more about particle physics, a science discipline with an amusing name.

Particle physics studies the smallest bits of the Universe (but in the same time, it often involves the greatest energies of the Universe!) Particle physics has changed the world a lot, but it usually takes years (even decades) until a groundbreaking scientific advice makes its way to our everyday lives. For example, the Internet was invented in CERN. The gamma radiation, which is now used in brain scanning technologies, was discovered there. And the touch screens invented in 1970s for operating experimental machinery, have now been transformed into smartphones! Let's see how the newly discovered Higgs Boson will be incorporated to our lives!

Entrance to the exhibition with the science centre ticket

"Aha, The Core of Science!" is open until 22 March 2020
