WHAT TO SEE
Tallinn Card’s recommendations for April
April is the ideal month for Tallinn Card holders to discover nature, art and the city and pay a visit to what was once the tallest building in the world…
FREE WITH TALLINN CARD
‘Night flyers’, the brand new exhibition at the Estonian Museum of Natural History, shines light on the mysterious worlds of moths and owls. On the second and third floors of the museum you can explore the animal world, seas and rivers and forests of the planet. There is also an exciting discovery room where you can find out how animals perceive the world.
The tower of St Olav’s Church – which is thought by many to have been the tallest building in the world at one point during the Middle Ages – opens its doors for the summer season on 1 April. You can climb the twisting and turning stairs of the tower to the platform at the base of the spire to enjoy the views it affords over the city.
10 April will see the opening of a new exhibition at the Adamson-Eric Museum entitled ‘The modern woman’, which will focus primarily on the way in which the topic of women dedicated to professional self-assertion was reflected in art in the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. Meanwhile, the permanent exhibition at the museum provides an overview of the rich modernist work of the artist Adamson-Eric from 1924-1968.
Regular excursions in English and Finnish include both the bus trip and the walking tour of the Old Town that follows. An experienced guide provides excursion-goers with an overview of life in Estonia and talks about local traditions, legends and politics.
