    My kids really like to get into the Museum, their friends talked about him a lot of interesting things. So we took half a day to visit him and were right: to examine in detail all the exhibits will not one day, very recommend Planetarium, there are sessions in Russian. A similar exhibition we previously seen in Amsterdam, but in very specific Tatru Museum, the subject is very diverse, everyone will find something for themselves. Temporary exhibition on the anatomy beyond praise, very informative! Adults too will do in the Museum, will not be bored, so all will definitely recommend visiting this Museum!

    For children, this place will undoubtedly be the best adventure days or two)) in General is a good place, but small. Actually not so much, as it seems at first glance. Some stands do not work (really), some do not work temporarily (for example, 3D video doesn't always work). The most interesting stand-queue. But the children will enjoy the uniquely:)

Where to stay in Tartu

As a university town, Tartu can get rowdy in the evenings. To ensure a quiet night's stay, look for more economical lodging outside of the center. That said, if you want to be in the thick of the nightlife, the center itself has quite a few budget accommodations catering to the youthful population. Unfortunately, this also means that those looking for luxury hotels in this area may be more hard-pressed. The most populous neighborhood in the city is Annelinn, bordering the Emajogi River, where you will find a variety of accommodations. Alternatively, Kesklinn, a smaller quarter, has plenty of mid-range hotels and budget guesthouses.
