If there's one iconic, over-the-top, must-see tourist attraction in Tartu, it's this super-modern facility where you can learn anything and everything about the Estonian nation. So massive that they had to find an old airfield to fit it on, the ERM, as the locals call it, comes with 6,000 square metres of exhibition space, an art gallery, its own cinema, a library, a restaurant and a café. One permanent exhibition, 'Encounters', walks you through the entirety of Estonian history from the Stone Age to this morning, with fascinating side rooms that delve into topics like language and cuisine. Downstairs, 'Echo of the Urals' tells the story of the Finno-Ugric peoples. A guided tour will race you through both exhibits in 1.5 hours, otherwise plan to spend 3 to 6 hours exploring at your own leisurely pace.
Through October 02, 2022, a temporary exhibition “Beauty of Colors. Golden Age of Estonian Art from the Enn Kunila collection” presents works by the most important Estonian painters from the first half of the 20th century.

Getting there: It's a 20-minute walk from the centre, but you can take bus N°7 from 'Soola' stop next to Tasku shopping mall or 'Vabaduse' stop next to the Market hall to the ERM stop. And especially handy if you're coming from the train station, bus N°25 also goes to ERM while stopping in the city centre at 'Kesklinn', 'Turu' and 'Soola' stops.
