Warm weather brings us outdoors. Sunny weather with long days is best for discovering Tallinn with a family or friends. Tallinn Card has plenty to offer both sun seekers and culture buffs, kids and grown-ups.
Thomas the train
This jolly little vehicle brings smiles to children's faces and relieve parents' weary feet as it takes them all on a 20-minute tour around the cobbled streets of Old Town. Non-stop departures from Kullassepa Street, near the Town Hall Square. Closed on rainy days. The train ride is free with Tallinn Card.
Museum of Puppet Arts NUKU
Exhibits include puppets from around the world, the workshops where puppets are created and a 'Chamber of Horrors' where the 'scarier' puppets are safely corralled. Dozens of interactive video screens throughout the museum add to the experience. At the museum's 'e-post office' you can even turn your own photo into a puppet character and either e-mail it to yourself or, for a small fee, have it made into a souvenir button or key chain to take home with you. From July 20 visitors can experience the free puppet show “Doll's play is simple”. Visiting the museum with Tallinn Card is free of charge.
AHHAA Science Centre
A whole world of adventure and discovery opens up at this modern activity centre that aims to make science fun for the whole family. Here you can try your hand at a number of interactive displays and take entertaining quizzes. Don't miss the amazing '4-D cinema', where films come alive with added sensory effects. Open throughout the summer also is the exhibition “Dialogue in the dark” an insight into the world of the blind. Visiting the centre with Tallinn Card is free of charge (except the 4-D cinema).
Those visiting Kadriorg with children in tow will definitely want to put this museum on their to-do list. Built in a 1930s-era recreational centre, Miia-Milla-Manda offers fun times and creative activities for 3 to 11 year-olds. Its exhibits are based around the theme of friendship. Visiting the museum with Tallinn Card is free of charge.
While in the Kadriorg park keep an eye also on the free outdoor concert schedule and take a look inside the Kumu Art Museum (free with Tallinn Card).
FK Centre and Viimsi Go-Carting centre offer high octane thrills to youngsters and grown ups alike who wish to test their driving skills. With Tallinn Card visits to the centres are half price.
