Located in an old wooden building in the heart of Tartu’s Old Town, the Toy Museum transports its adult visitors back to their most joyous childhood days and offers children plenty to see and do.
The permanent exhibit displays toys that children in Estonia have played with throughout the ages. The display also includes artist-made dolls, souvenir dolls from around the globe and traditional Finno-Ugric toys. The museum has play and workshop rooms, and the exhibit rooms also offer plenty to keep one busy. Alternating exhibits and children’s activities are organized at the museum. The objective of the toy museum is to collect, preserve, study and introduce toys of Estonians and nations of other countries together with everything related to playing. The museum deals with the development of children’s culture and offers opportunities to spend free time for children and families.
