Energy Discovery Centre

The Energy Discovery Centre is a wonderful destination for a family excursion. Located in a power plant that is more than 100 years old, the centre promotes popular science through interactive exhibits that cover such fields as energy, classical physics, sound and optics. One exhibit permits visitors to see and feel how electricity is made. Another “bridge of lightning,” makes one’s hair stand on end through static electricity. A separate exhibition is dedicated to a national source of pride: oil shale energy. This locally mined rock meets the bulk of Estonia’s energy needs and many of the technologies for its extraction have been developed in the small Baltic country. In fact, Estonia’s oil shale industry is the most developed in the world.

Another exhibition at the centre, Sounds of Space, provides visitors with the opportunity to “listen” to the aurora borealis and to other “sounds” in outer space. It turns out that although space is a virtual vacuum, sound does exist in the form of electromagnetic vibrations. Thus, the black abyss above our heads is teeming with “noises”, some of which have been recorded in audible form. The Energy Discovery Centre is the first such establishment in the Baltic countries and a visit there is sure to captivate both adults and children.
