Best place for your Family!
When you travel with kids, it is important to spend time in children’s activities. This is why we want to talk about the Children’s Museum, a section within the Lastemuuseum of Tallin. It is placed in a medieval merchant’s dwelling in the centre of the Old Town, Kalamaja. The museum has two floors where young and adult visitors will surely enjoy a beautiful travel through time by a large amount of toys.
The display allows the little ones be aware of the changes that the dolls and toys have suffered from the past and how children could have fun with different kinds of objects. The most ancient piece is from the 15th century.
Among the toys displayed, you will find balls, dolls, furnitures, books, animal toys, cars or trains. The museum has also a specific section where the little visitors can play and have fun with other children.
The Children’s Museum is open from 1 March to 31st October, from Wednesday to Sunday from 10.30h to 18h. The access to the museum is free for all the visitors every last Friday of the months. Moreover, children in pre-school age don’t have to pay either
Museum is situated in Kalamaja, the oldest suburb of Tallinn.
It is in a functional dwelling house from 1932 – 1934. The two floors of the museum are the home for toys from the Middle Ages up to the present days. The oldest objects are a small leather ball from the 15th century and a fashion doll from the 1st part of the 18th century.
The display introduces the toys like dolls, doll furniture, carriages and cars, trains, ships, toy pets, table games, children’s books, postcards and a lot of other things that people of all ages can enjoy.
