Tallinn offers various educational and entertaining activities for families We can recommend a number things you can do in Tallinn with your kids using the Tallinn Card!

Going on a city tour with small children is not difficult at all if you opt for the London-style red double-decker buses that offer Tallinn City Tours. You can hop on and off the buses as you please to take a closer look at sights on the way.

Another option is to have some fun on the sea aboard the steamboat Katharina. You can visit the beautiful Naissaar Island just an hour from Tallinn or cruise between the harbours of Tallinn. Both trips start from the Lennusadam (Seaplane Harbour), which can also keep kids entertained for hours.

The Old Town of Tallinn is known for its historical towers. When you visit Tallinn with your family, don’t forget to climb to the top of various tall towers, such as the St Olav’s Church TowerTown Hall TowerKiek in de KökTallinn Town Wall towers. The Tallinn TV Tower, the Energy Discovery Centre, the Estonian Health Care Museum and the Estonian Museum of Natural History also have a lot for families to discover.

Maarjamäe History Centre renovation is finished with 3 fresh museums to visit, offering hours of discovering for the whole family. Maarjamäe Palace with an exhibition entitled „My Free Country“ and for children a special Children’s Republic, Maarjamäe Palace Stables with an exhibition about Estonian pop music history and Estonian Film Museum where you can discover first-hand the work that goes on behind the scenes to make your favourite films. There’s also Outdoor Exhibition of Soviet Monuments and play area for the kids.

When visiting with smaller children, we recommend taking them to the Museum for Puppet Arts NUKUKalamaja Children's Museum Miiamilla and Kadriorg's Children’s Museum Miiamilla, which all have exciting things to see and do for both boys and girls. Bigger children will certainly enjoy the tour in the Old Town with Tallinn Audioguide Tour on the iPod.

You could also have a fun and educational day at the Estonian Open Air Museum in Rocca al Mare and the Tallinn Zoo, which is located nearby. If you like active holidays, you can go skating on the Harju Ice Rink in winter.

If you would like to take some time out and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you can take a boat ride on Pirita river, visit one of the many spas to swim and enjoy a sauna session, or go for a walk in the Tallinn Botanic Garden, where you can admire the beauty of over 2400 plants.

Those who love sweets should definitely pay a visit to the Kalev Marzipan Museum Room. In addition to getting a good overview of the history of marzipan and being able to watch an artist painting marzipan figurines, you can buy these handmade figurines and delicious chocolate candies to take home with you.
