The Tartu Toy Museum, situated in the Old Town of Tartu, takes adults back to the brighter days of their childhood and offers children plenty of interesting things to see and do. Permanent expositions display toys that Estonian children have played with throughout the years. Artist-made dolls, souvenir dolls of different nations and Finno-Ugric traditional toys are being exhibited. Playrooms and workshops are also open. You can see puppets from Estonian puppet animation films and temporary exhibitions in the outbuilding. Since 2010 the museum also has a theatre building named "Teatri kodu" (Theatre's Home) with a theatre hall, museum of theatre puppets and a children's studio.
