This museum is a stunning example of how to use architecture, computer technology and thoughtful, creative curation to give life to the people who have inhabited this area since the 1030s. from the moment you see it outside to the second you enter the doors, everything has been thoughtfully presented for an amazing experience. We did it chronologically, armed with our chip cards that instantly changed the information about each exhibit from estonian to english for us. The life-size displays of early houses, the early clothing of the time, walking on a gorgeous digital river.....it drew us right in. Loved the little folk cartoons throughout showing us what was important. Walking through the displays up to modern times showed the difficulties faced during times under siege, approaches to freedom, the evolution of design with emphasis on wooden wares, I could (and we did) go on and on. We were there for 6 hours. Would have stayed longer but our feet gave out. The cafe at the end of the museum was delicious and a good bargain as well (the large cafe was being used for an event). The bus drops you off right at the door and runs every 20 minutes or so for 1.50 euros. Highly highly recommend.
