You thought you've seen it all? Guess again! Here are the newest attractions opening in Estonia this year. With just 1.3 million habitants, Estonia is home to a whopping 250 museums storing historical gems and fun modern attractions. Let's take a closer look at new places to visit in the near future.


An internationally recognised museum of photography with its roots in Stockholm, Fotogragiska is a meeting place for art, good food, music, design, and an open mindset. The concept of the Fotografiska Tallinn Photography Museum includes an exhibition and event area, a café, a restaurant, and a fine-art photography shop.


Let your imagination fly! PROTO Invention Factory will open this October. Only here, in the former secret submarine factory, will you see prototypes of incredible inventions come to life thanks to the latest technology. 

Kai art center

A new cultural hub for local and international art, Kai opens in September 2019. Located in the historic and culturally-vibrant Noblessner area on Tallinn's waterfront, the former submarine plant will provide 450 m2 of top-floor exhibition space, presenting four main exhibitions each year.

Thule Koda

This "alternative history" museum featuring the history of Estonia's largest island Saaremaa will offer entertaining activities, exhibitions, and interactive participation (DIY-cinema, 360º movies, etc.).
