The Estonian Sports Museum, founded in 1963, is the largest sports museum in the Baltics. Exhibition rooms on three floors, historic cellar and specialized library just in the centre of Tartu are worth discovering. In March 2017, a new exhibition "All in!" was opened on the first floor of museum. Exhibition focuses on major ball games- basketball, football, handball and volleyball. New interactive solutions such as reaction wall and serve speed measure technology are waiting for sport fans of all ages. New museum experience includes posiibility to play football on our mini-football court as well as basketball and hanball. All historic texts are in english as well. The permanent exposition "Hortus Athleticus" (in Estonian and English) gives a thorough overview of the development of Estonian sport through various stages of history. Museum visitor meets the mileu of the age with historic awards, cups and sports equipment. Besides exhibition, the permanent exposition offers several fun but educating entertainment posibilities. The visitor can participate in virtual Olympic tour, test his/her strength on the simulators of tug-of-war and cycling, test knowledge in sports quizzes, take photos among old-time strongmen or scan QR codes for more information (first museum in Estonia that uses QRpedia). Guided tours available!

Really nothing too interesting if you don't care about sports in Estonia...could have some kind of games or interactive sports things for people and especially children to do

On the one hand - it's not a huge place and it won't take you much time until you start with interactive stands. On another hand - there are quite many things to see.
