Overview

Located in an old wooden building in the heart of Tartu’s Old Town, the Toy Museum transports its adult visitors back to their most joyous childhood days and offers children plenty to see and do. The permanent exhibit displays toys that children in Estonia have played with throughout the ages. The display also includes artist-made dolls, souvenir dolls from around the globe and traditional Finno-Ugric toys. The museum has play and workshop rooms, and the exhibit rooms also offer plenty to keep one busy. Alternating exhibits and children’s activities are organized at the museum. In Theatre House there is a theatre stage, Children’s Studio, and theatre puppets museum. Theatre House is a unique theatre which gets its inspiration from the Toy Museum, childhood, games and memories.

A very large exposition full of toys both old and new. This ticket also includes a free visit to the puppet theatre museum. It was very fun to look at all of these toys in display.

This Museum is nice displaying mostly soft toys of former USSR, Estonia and Japan. For adults it may be of not much interest until unless you have special interest into toys, but for kids it is an excellent place.
