The Estonian Museum of Natural History is closed from 3rd of March

02. March

From 3rd of March, the Estonian Museum of Natural History is closed due to the announced restrictions in Estonia. Take care of yourself and your close ones and hopefully we can welcome you at our museum soon again!

While the museum stays closed, we aspire you to use our online features:

  • Our virtual museum (available in English) invites you to get to know the ancient and unique Estonian mires, the richness of our forest and sea biodiversity and the geological history, dating back almost 2000 million years. Partake in a journey through time covering half a billion years in the ancient sea and get to know fatherhood in nature. 
  • For Estonian speakers, our podcast “Öökulli akadeemia” offers four episodes on different topics to listen. We have also just launched a new podcast for Russian speakers, called «Звонок специалисту».
  • Our Augmented Reality Application “Loodusmuuseum AR” offers you to see nature like never before - resurrect ancient creatures that lived hundreds of millions of years ago, see the wing pattern of the Estonian national butterfly up close or view how a mole moves around in its tunnels. The cards needed to use the application at home are in Estonian.
