Tallinn Card: what to visit in October?

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

By Tallinn Card  •  12.09.2019

The all-in-one sightseeing card Tallinn Card has some recommendations for places to visit in October. The crisp autumn days are perfectly suited for indoors activities in museums and workshops. Why not end the day by the colourful Kadrioru Park, with a nice spicy Mexican dinner? All of that, of course, at a very affordable price!

Travel tip for the school break: did you know that in addition to free admission to the most exciting museums and sights around Tallinn, the Tallinn Card also provides sales on city cards in Helsinki and St. Petersburg? For more information, see below for tips on how to easily combine two or three sightseeing cards for pearls along the coast of the Baltic Sea. See more, pay less! 

Tallinn Card provides free entry to 40 of the best museums and sights, free rides on public transportation, discounts on tours, at entertainment venues, in restaurants and shops. With one adult card, you can take two children under 7 with you for free. 

Our recommendations for October: 

Energy Discovery Centre 

The former Tallinn power plant is now home to the Energy Discovery Centre, where activities abound for the whole family. Over a hundred hands-on exhibits show how electrical current and devices, sound and optics work, and much more. In addition, lightning fans big and small can discover how bolts of lightning behave.

On 19 October the Discovery Centre welcomes everyone to a space-themed family day, where among other attractions you can also see the freshly renovated planetarium. The permanent exhibition of the museum has also been updated. 

Adult ticket 9 euros, children 3-7 euros / free with the Tallinn Card. 

Estonian Health Care Museum 

At the Estonian Health Care Museum, located in Old Town Tallinn, you will learn about the human body and everything connected to it. In addition to an exciting permanent exhibition, recently a new annual exhibition “I, Superorganism” was opened – it talks about bacteria and the role of these minute organisms in shaping our health, our life expectancy and wellbeing. 

Adult ticket 8 euros, children 5 euros / free with the Tallinn Card. 

Marzipan room 

After a day of educational activities at museums, a nice sweet bite will definitely hit the spot! Located in the same building as Maiasmokk, the oldest cafe in Estonia, the Marzipan room provides an overview of the history of marzipan – how did the medieval pharmaceutical become a decorative dessert? The exhibit includes nearly 200 beautiful figurines made of marzipan. You can also see the fine art of marzipan painting first hand and, of course, buy some goodies to take home with you. 

Free gift with the Tallinn Card. 

Cantina Carramba

To see the fall foliage at its best in the city, it is definitely worth taking a trip to the Kadrioru Park. The cool weather is perfect for taking a break and having a meal at the cosy park side Mexican restaurant Cantina Carramba, whose menu features warming spices, hot dishes and traditional tex-mex fare.

Helsinki Card and St. Petersburg Card

This fall, in addition to visiting Tallinn, why not take a trip to neighbouring cities of Helsinki and St. Petersburg as well? The fall period, when the cruise ships have ended their tours for the year, is the best time for getting to know these three very different and unique pearls along the coast of the Baltic Sea and for visiting the museums and sights they have to offer. Helsinki is only a few hours’ ferry ride away and St. Petersburg is easily accessible by either bus or train (do definitely look into visa requirements ahead of visiting).

With the Helsinki Card, you can visit museums and sights, participate at the Helsinki Panorama Sightseeing tour, and also use the public transportation service free of charge (Helsinki Card City and Region). 

Full-price Helsinki Cards start at 42 euros. With the Tallinn Card, adult tickets are 5 euros off. 

The St. Petersburg Card includes free entry to 40 of the most popular museums, free and discounted tours, special offers and discounts at cafes, restaurants, hotels and shops. 

Depending on the rouble exchange rate, full-price St. Petersburg Cards start at 59,4 euros. With the Tallinn Card, get -10% off the price (also valid after Tallinn Card expires).

All the Tallinn Card offers are available on our website. To visit the museums and sights with even greater comfort, you can purchase the Tallinn Card online at our webshop.
