All tickets purchased on September 2 and 3 are valid until the evening of September 4. 

“Every day AHHAA has a different party program and we are waiting for everyone to celebrate the beginning of the school year with their families,” added Pilvi Kolk.

On September 2, a photo exhibition of the brightest moments of the last 25 years will also be opened in the lobby of the science centre. The exhibition will remain open until next summer.
