Estonian Sports and Olympic Museum
Be sporty in the museum!
The Estonian Sports and Olympic Museum in Tartu is the largest sports experience center in the Nordic countries, which offers plenty of knowledge and activities for sports lovers of all ages.
The Estonian Sports and Olympic Museum’s permanent exhibition The Story of Estonian Sports reveals the brightest moments in Estonian sports history, from great victories to painful losses, from heroic wins to doping dramas.
In addition to interesting texts and unique photo material, many hands-on attractions await visitors, such as a virtual reality experience with legendary sports arenas and stars, an interactive basketball corner, a super-realistic rally simulator, a sports fan’s room from the 80s, the commentary booth of the legendary sports journalist Tarmo Tiisler, and a historic gym.
However, it is the magnificent Estonian Sports Hall of Fame that showcases the achievements of the sports heroes and people who have greatly influenced Estonian sports.
At X-FACTOR, an extreme sports exhibition, you can get an overview of the sports that challenge the limits of human abilities, the history of Estonian extreme sports and, of course, test yourself in a number of extremes, starting with a virtual kayak rapids ride and ending with a climbing wall and slacklining.
The museum is nominated for the European Museum of The Year Award 2025.
