The tower on Vallimäe Hill in Paide is now home to the Wittenstein Time Centre. An elevator rolls back the centuries like a time machine, with displays from different eras on different floors - the days of knights, kings and tsars; the period of occupation; the first Estonian republic; and the period of the country's regained independence. Sound and lighting effects, video programmes and illusions add to the overall effect.
Did you know...? - It takes around 1.5-2 hours to fully explore the centre - Groups of 10+ people receive a discount - The Time Centre was co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development and Paide City Government - Booking in advance, groups are also welcome on Mondays and Tuesdays

Interesting program about history! Very good location, next to church, old part of the town and cafes/shops.
This center has a very interesting and in hilarious program about Estonian history through 7-8 floors in this tower. On 2 top floors is also a restaurant/bar.
