Estonia boasts an unusual amount of space per capita. Over a half of our country is covered with pristine nature: trees swaying overhead, bogs fading into the mist, erratic boulders sticking out of the sea along the coastline. Such wealth of intact nature is rarely found elsewhere in Europe. The more life concentrates in cities, the more humans become estranged from the woods and seas. Yet humans, too, are part of nature, of the animal kingdom: we ourselves do not remember but the genes know. A return to nature is as if a journey to one's self. We invite you on this journey, telling stories of the wilderness of Estonia and helping you decode its secret talks.

A new exhibition "Lichen and Moss" was very interesting and nicely presented. 6-year kids enjoyed it also. Weather forecast from a la million years ago was great (the 1st time I saw it in Helsinki actually)!

Lots of interesting things for kids over 3. A big minus for the lack of signs in english. Most of the texts were only in estonian. We had bad luck with the exhibition, since it was about different mosses.

As lovers of natural history we would always take the opportunity to visit a museum specialising in the topic. But this museum just does not do that. In fact we do rather think the museum is misnamed as it became clear to us that they...More
