May 1

On May 1, 2013, the University of Tartu Museum became home to the Crazy Scientist who moved into an office built specially for him.

The Crazy Scientist is a unique figure who is bewitched by the world around him so he teaches children and adults how to see and discover the wonders of the world. The Crazy Scientist’s Office is a fun constantly growing and evolving environment where you can learn about the world of science by playing, observing, touching, tasting, smelling and experimenting.

Each year on May 1, the Museum celebrates the Crazy Scientist’s birthday and everyone, both young and old, are invited to take part in the fun and eventful family day.

The Crazy Scientist’s birthday also marks the beginning of the Museum’s summer season.
