Thermal engineer makes Nordic Countries habitable!

The heating lab is a unique interactive environment where you can get an overview of the nature of today’s production, distribution, and consumption of heat and electricity. An equally informative and playful journey to discover the behind-the-scenes of this exciting world ordinarily invisible to the eye.

A model of a contemporary cogeneration plant, a modern heat substation, a piece from the main pipeline of Estonia, a view of the Tallinn district heating network in real time, as well as a thermal camera – all of this contributes to introducing the diverse world of thermal energy to the visitor.

Heating lab – the fascinating behind-the-scenes of energy.


Ventilation laboratory is a room with the purpose of demonstrating the air exchange in a room. The laboratory is meant for everyone - children, school and university students and other people who might be interested in the topic.

  • Visitors get an overview of ventilation system components.
  • Visitors get knowledge and tips on how to plan a well working ventilation solution.
  • Visitors will be shown the effects of a poorly designed ventilation solution on a person.
  • Visitors can use simple tools to plan ventilation modules which can be tested in the laboratory.

In the laboratory, for visualizing operation of the ventilation systems, show lighting, music and fog generator smoke is used.
