The Estonian Museum of Natural History
Come and discover the secrets of Estonian nature!
You can explore the geological history of an Estonian area that dates back almost 2,000 million years, and discover forests with their rich biota, and mysterious mires.
It is worth taking the time to visit the Estonian Museum of Natural History in Tallinn Old Town. There is a lot to see and discover on the three floors of the museum! You can see and touch different minerals, rocks, and resources as well as the fossilized remains of creatures that once lived here. Visitors will also learn about the formation of ancient and unique landscapes, such as the mires.
The hall of forests welcomes you with a rich display of mammals, birds, and insects. Here, you can find both a rare flying squirrel and an elk – the largest mammal of Estonia’s forests.
The museum also has the option of an audio guide.
