  • Old russian airbase

    This new museum is on the site of an old Russian airbase just outside Tartu city,which I visited in May 2018,which was only a walk away from the city centre,and houses lots of things about Estonia...

  • If I could give 10 stars, I would

    If you visit only one museum the whole year/season, this should be it. It's literally one of my favourite places ever. It's more of a playground than a museum: you can touch, play, smell, hear all...

  • If you have time, you should visit

    The museum is interesting and especially the newly built house is really something special. We spent 3 hours there.
