Learning about Estonian nature
Estonian Natural History Museum offers six different interactive exhibitions include audio clips and games, and families and teachers are invited to attend virtual museum lessons inspired by Estonian nature. The Estonian Museum of Natural History has permanent exhibitions that showcase mysterious marshes, wildlife and our geological history dating back almost millions of years. The purpose of the virtual museum is certainly not to replace the physical museum but to provide an alternative. In addition to former and current permanent exhibitions, two temporary exhibitions of the Estonian Museum of Natural History have been opened for a virtual visit, including “Fathers and Sons” and “The Mysterious Ancient Sea”. Visiting the virtual museum is free for everyone, and donations are welcome.
