About
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.

The museum is cosy, clean and up-date small museum for natural history. In our visit (Feb 2020) there was nice exhibition of bats.
Our kids liked much all the small and big animals. The museum should have larger house and exhibition for Africa, the narure of rainforest etc.
Anyhow, very nice place to visit, take this to your list for kids in Tallinn.

The place is kind of small (3 floors, 6-7 rooms in all) and texts are in Estonian, Russian and English, but that did not really matter. My 9-year old son got a kick out of this place and the visit was not too long to bore him. The exotic fish tanks are little silly in the estonian context, but otherwise the place is nice. It is recently renovated and it seems lot of effort has been put into the exhibition.

Interesting place to visit for a while, located in the old city centre. It's a free attraction included when you buy the Tallin card. Always interesting to visit a museum of natural history, anywhere. This one is focused on the history of Estonia. Very well kept, on 3 floors, interesting the 3d tour as well. Cool

This is a nice museum for learning a little more about nature in Estonia but you have to have the application in your local language

This museum is pretty small, but it was great learning some fun facts about the country and that area. If you don't speak the language, you can go to the website and it'll give you an audio tour in your language.

Not a lot of English so hard to read the information. Some of the exhibits looked a bit old and frayed. But, wasn't expensive to get in and was interesting.

A small museum about animals in and around Estonia. The virtual reality movie was really good!!!
Only we do not speak the language so much of the information that the museum offers was useless to us. Still nice tot see everything.
The museum has changing exhibitions. So the virtual reality movie is not always there.

They have a pretty Cool virtual reality exhibit on the Baltic Sea🐠, which only costs like €2 more (tickets are €5 Or €3 If you're a student) the museum isn't big but it's quite interesting. Bring your phone and earphones cause otherwise there's no information in English 😕

Good museum, but the Virtual Reality tour of how the sea of Estonia has changed over time was absolutely the best. If you don't understand russian or estonian some of the value of the museum will be lost to you. It cheap though and still worth a visit. We brought our kids (age 8 and 10) and we had a nice visit
