MOMU Motorsports Museum
Pearls of Estonian motorsport
The Motorsports Museum, or MOMU, is located at the former Ellamaa power plant in Turba, Harju County. It presents the history of Estonian motorsports.
At MOMU, a visitor can learn an overview of various motorsports, from race cars to jet skis. Special attention has been paid to the racing vehicles produced in Estonia: eight different companies producing racing vehicles have operated in Estonia at various times. The most prominent of these was Tallinna Autode Remondi Katsetehas or TARK (later named Kavor), which ranked second in the world in terms of its production in the 1980s. MOMU has 252 racing-related cars, motorcycles, and racing boats on display for visitors to admire.
The museum building is definitely worth checking out: The 100-year-old Ellamaa power plant is one of the pearls of Estonian industrial architecture. At MOMU, a museum visitor can also enjoy the beautiful garden created in memory of the legendary Pirita-Kose-Kloostrimets racetrack – a miniature track of its shape with a total length of 73 m spins between areas of plants. There are also outdoor attractions for children at MOMU.
