There are about 250 museums in Estonia displaying everything from local history to international artists. The museums offer inspiring experience both for children and adults.
From traditional village culture to KGB history, there's plenty to learn about in Estonian museums. Some of the brightest stars in Estonian museum scene are KUMU art museum and Seaplane Harbour, both located in Tallinn. Nominated European Museum of the Year at different times, both museums are among the many must-see museums in Estonia for their inventive architectural grandeur as well as interactive displays, events and cafes.
In the southern part of the country Estonian National Museum opened its new and bigger building in October 2016. Many smaller museums may be found in the city centre of Tartu. Children will definitely love AHHAA science centre, where they can learn playfully about water, fire, energy and etc.
Ideas for adventurous travellers who want to venture past the main sights and explore mysterious, lesser known places.
Have fun exploring everything from traditional Estonian island culture to beautiful old seaplanes.
Some of the best science, natural, children’s, art & history museums are also the smallest and most quirky.
