Vabamu Museum of Occupations and Freedom inspires visitors to reflect on the fragility of freedom and the importance of universal human values.

Museum of Estonian Architecture has opened a new permanent exhibition especially for children and young people which shows how to experience space and grasp the importance of good architecture. Various display items direct children to identify different building materials and constructions, think about the ‘circulatory system’ of a house, and the specific smells that relate to various rooms. There are tubes to crawl through and an animated book where rooms, streets and the entire city come alive as the pages are turned.
