About the Museum

Why come to the museum?

Estonia boasts an unusual amount of space per capita. Over a half of our country is covered with pristine nature: trees swaying overhead, bogs fading into the mist, erratic boulders sticking out of the sea along the coastline. Such wealth of intact nature is rarely found elsewhere in Europe.

The more life concentrates in cities, the more humans become estranged from the woods and seas. Yet humans, too, are part of nature, of the animal kingdom: we ourselves do not remember but the genes know. A return to nature is as if a journey to one’s self. We invite you on this journey, telling stories of the wilderness of Estonia and helping you decode its secret talks.

 

From 19 March to 25 October 2015, the Estonian Museum of Natural History presents the exhibition „ Night Flyers". 

 

From 11 to 20 September 2015, the Estonian Museum of Natural History will display the traditional mushroom exhibition. The exhibition offers a comprehensive overview of edible and poisonous mushrooms found in Estonia. A special focus of this autumn’s exhibition is on fairy rings. One of them can be seen also in our front yard.
