Small but relatively fun museum

Small museum related to paleontology and archeology in the vicinity of Tartu, so if you want to get there car would be very handy, suppose you can get there by bike, and maybe public transport...

New place to visit

Ice Age Centre is a theme park to visit with kids, it allows to tell the history in easy-to-understand manner. Mammoth is really big and looks alive. Reasonable ricing for such an interesting museum...
