6. EXTREME SPORTS EXHIBITION X-FACTOR
You will have an extremely cool experience if you visit the exhibition of extreme sports at the sports museum. At the exhibition, for example, you can take turns on the climbing wall, test your balance on the slackline, experience the most extreme sports using virtual reality glasses, and ride finger skates in the 2021 Simple Session skate park. Sounds extremely cool, right? If you don't believe it, check it out in the video!
|7. ESTONIAN SPORTS HALL OF FAME
One of the grandest rooms in the Sports Museum, which is a special tribute to Estonia's most influential and famous sportsmen and sports influencers of all time.

8. GREAT SOUVENIRS IN THE MUSEUM SHOP
What is the first thing you think of when you hear the phrases "Sometimes lose, always win!" or "For clean sport!"? Anyway, we're thinking about socks and a sauna towel - in our cool museum shop you can find many clever and humorous souvenirs. Come and choose your favourite!
