About
The museum’s permanent exposition "A Heart to Heart About Your Body" provides both adults and children with excellent basic knowledge about the anatomy and physiology of the human body, senses, sexuality, hygiene and health care issues. Museum's temporary exhibition "Universe of Sleep" is about sleep and sleeping. Estonian Health Museum is located in Tallinn's Old Town. We have 15 exciting theme rooms, various models, interactive displays, computer programs and hands-on games to demonstrate how the human body functions. Visitors say about us: "Extremely well set up, every city should have one!" "Amazing and unique place!" "Playful and interactive!" "Educational for all ages!" "Awesome modern museum. A real hidden gem."

    An amazing museum, you need hours in this place
    We got sore feet after 4 hours (unfortunately there's hardly anywhere to sit down in the museum) but could easily have spent an entire day browsing through all the fascinating exhibits about the human body. Loved the special exhibition on sleep, too! There is English on all the exhibit signs.

    Great museum
    An excellent museum for adults and children. The layout is very well designed, educational, clear, interactive. We were there for 2 hours, if we didn't have other commitments that day, we could have stayed there for at least another hour. The staff is very friendly. There are also interesting things to buy as a souvenir in the souvenir shop.

    Possibly the best museum in Tallinn!
    This museum is all about the human body and the exhibits give wonderful explanations of everything from skin to reproduction to death. There are amazing cross-sections of bodies to demonstrate how body parts work and interesting models and hands-on activities to help understanding. This type of museum should be in every city to help children and adults understand the human body and appreciate how to take better care of it. I wish I had stayed longer or was able to visit again. If you have the Tallinn Card, definitely add this museum to your list of places to visit.

    Really interactive, brilliant museum!
    Very, very good museum. Really interesting and unique attractions, and all so interactive. Refreshingly everything worked, no "out of order" exhibits. Could have spent even longer here, well recommend! They've gone to such great effort to make a very fun experience.

The museum is really good. A lot of interesting information for adults and enough activities for 5-10 years old children.

Nice and interesting museum covering the themes you not expect o find in medeival old town museums which are mostly tend to show some history or so. Here is full fledged medical museum with some exhibits indeed not for a faint hearted. It has own share of interactive things for kids's to do, but I think if you are going there with kids, best age would be in their teens, when they can understand it in full, it's fine to go with smaller kids to, but I think they either will miss a lot of points there or simply will be scared by some exhibitions.
