Onni the Squirrel recommends:

  • In Tallinn Zoo  you can see camels, polar bears, pythons, lions, and seals. In the Tropical house, you can say hello to crocodiles and chimpanzees, and the stars of the Elephant House - Fien, Dray, and Carl - do not leave anyone indifferent. Recently, a rare rhinoceros baby was born in the zoo, who is right now demonstrating his first playing skills and is learning rhinoceros tricks from his mother. From the zoo, it is easy to wander across the road to  Rocca al Mare shopping center  and to the Estonian Open Air Museum.
  • The Seaplane Harbor Marine Museum has a genuine submarine you can crawl into, the Lembit, plus many other boats and yachts, the icebreaker Suur Tõll, a cinema, a large aquarium, and simulators. Small sea enthusiasts can take pictures in naval costumes, or drive a boat, or throw paper airplanes to practice accuracy. Right now there is the sea rescue exhibition, all this as a special offer valid for the guests of the Viru hotel.
  • In the Energy Discovery Center, you will adventure into an exciting world of physics, travel to distant planets and gaze at outer space. The center has unique "light machines," which demonstrates lightning bolts of up to 3 m.
  • The Estonian History Museum takes you on a journey several millennia back and tells the stories about the  colorful history of small Estonia. In the Maarjamäe stable building of the museum, you can view the anniversary exhibition of our northern neighbors  "100 Finnish things."
