  • I've seen this theater by accident during a walk. It is located in the old town. This theatre was founded in 1952 by Ferdinand Veike. In the annexe is a doll museum. Unfortunately, was at the time when I was there, the theater closed. Very nice, I found that by Ferdinand Veike House wall a sculpture with a hand puppet is attached. It looks as if he comes with the upper body through the wall, to inspire people for the dolls.

  • We came across this quite by accident and decided to enter the Museum. There is a lot of stairs, so if there is so much care about or is huonopolvinen, so you should be prepared for either painkillers or not to go. The museum itself was very entertaining, even adults. Kids activities would probably have more to do. If there aren't any in a very intense feeling of puppet theatre, etc. , may €6 the entrance to the sound a lot.

  • I love the colourful interior of the newly renovated Children's Theatre, plus the cafe makes it worthwhile stepping in with kids even if you have no theatre plans. Some of the shows, especially for toddlers, are also suitable for non-Estonian speakers. Or at least pop into the foyer to admire the interior!
  • Beautiful theatre. Artistic design.
  • This place has grown from a puppet theatre to a place where musicals, festivals and other amazing shows take place as well. 2010 NUKU opened a museum of puppet arts. Museum is deffinetely a place to visit when you are in Tallinn with your family and kids. Lot's of ineractive features, amazing exhibitions, chamber of horrors and much more. Love it!
  • The great thing about the place, and always a nice experience.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
