What to do in Tallinn on Independence Day?

24 February is Estonian Independence Day and a public holiday. This also means some changes to the opening hours of Tallinn Card’s partners that day.

Don’t worry though! Plenty of the museums and attractions will be open, welcoming visitors and even holding special events to celebrate Independence Day. 
Some businesses may also close their doors three hours earlier than usual the day before the holiday, 23 February, which is why we recommend checking the opening hours of museums and attractions on their websites.
