Proto Invention factory



In October 2019 PROTO invention factory, a secret laboratory where visitors can discover and experience the wonders of invention, will open in Tallinn. It is not simply a museum, science park or gaming center – it unites all three!

With the aid of virtual reality and experiments, a true invention laboratory will come to life in the PROTO Invention Factory. Exhibits in the invention center focus on the time period from the mid-19th to early 20th century, when science developed at a breakneck pace.

Submarines, aviation engines, automobiles and scientific experiments from electricity to photography are evidence of the great fervor that characterized the approach to science at that time.

In addition to PROTO invention factory, the foundry hosts a spacious 645 m² event hall, two conference rooms, comfortable study halls, gift shop and a café.

PROTO Invention Factory is located in the historic building of Noblessner foundry. The submarine shipyard at Noblessner was founded in 1912.
