Pre-registration is required for the following Museum Sundays at the Tallinn City Museum branches

Pre-registration is required for the following Museum Sundays at the Tallinn City Museum branches

The Museum Sundays programme, which attracted nearly 60 000 visitors last year, will continue this year, but from February it will be necessary to buy a zero ticket to visit the branches of Tallinn City Museum.

According to Deputy Mayor Kaarel Oja, the number of visitors to the Museum Days has consistently broken attendance records, and at certain times the museums have been somewhat overcrowded. "In many of the smaller museum branches, this inevitably has an impact on the experience of visiting a museum during the busiest hours. So we have decided to follow the example of several other cities that organize Museum Sundays by introducing a simple zero-ticket system requiring advance registration," explained Oja.

Free admission, or zero tickets, are available from the website of the Tallinn City Museum and from the pages of the museum's branches.
Bookings for the February visit open on 15 January and can be booked up to two months in advance. When booking your tickets, it is also important to note the time of your visit, as only a limited number of people can enter the museum at any one time. There are no service charges for booking free tickets. A maximum of 10 tickets can be booked per person. It is also possible to buy free tickets on the spot using a smartphone, but if you buy tickets at the last minute, you should be aware that there may be a shortage of tickets and therefore a possible waiting time. 

In cases when participants wish to visit more than one Tallinn City Museum branch on Museum Sundays, you must make a separate reservation for each museum. If the visitor does not have access to the internet, paper tickets can be requested at the museum ticket offices up to two months in advance. 

If unable to go on a booked visit to the museum, you also have the option of returning your free tickets. If you have accidentally booked an admission at the wrong time, it is not possible to exchange it, but you can return it and book a new time. 

Pre-registration is required Tallinn City Life Museum (Vene tn. 17),  Kiek in de Köki fortification museum (Komandandi tee 2),Museum of Photography (Raekoja 4/6), Kalamaja museum (Kotzebue 16), Peeter I House museum (Mäekalda 2),  Tallinn Russian museum, (Pikk 29a). This year, the MiiaMilla Children's Museum is closed for exhibit renovations, but from February, you can enjoy the Museum's Sunday activities outdoors in the Children's Park in front of the museum, which also requires advance purchase of a free ticket.
Pre-registration is not required for the three Literary Museums in Kadriorg: Vilde museum  (Roheline aas 3), Tammsaare museum (Koidula 12a) and Mati Undi museum (L. Koidula 17). In addition Kaja gallery (E. Vilde tee 118), Song Festival Grounds Visitor Centre (Narva maantee 95), Lasnamäe pavilion (Jaan Koorti 24) and  Nõmme museum (Jaama 18).

The next free Museum Sundays will take place on 5 February, 5 March, 2 April, 7 May, 4 June, 2 July, 6 August, 3 September, 1 October, 5 November and 3 December.

Museums are urging visitors to come to Museum Sundays without large bags.
