Wittenstein Time Centre in Paide Tower

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

    Big museum in the tower

    However the price is quite expensive, I do not regret visit there. Museum have 5 floors, on each one is different period. If you know a bit of history, you can have good examples for your story...

    In the limestone tower

    Looks like it has just opened. 6 euros to get in the time museum. Also a small shop in a freshly renovated castle tower.

    Probably seen better days

    Before this museum I saw much better museums in Estonia, so the price is probably too high. Idea of museum is interesting - different age for each floor. A lot of buttons, which shows videos or makes...
