Sightseeing in Tallinn

While gaining an insight into civil life of the Estonians yesterday, Corinna and Michel used the Sunday for a more technical museum. The Seaplane Museum exhibites various ships, sailing boats, bouys, a submarine and of course a seaplane. It also provides information about the military of Estonia of the last century and how their technique and defense strategy evolved. They were amazed how modern IT is already implemented to foster the visitors learning processes. Nearly every group of exhibits has an own monitor were a videos or some fotos are displayed in addition to a more detailled text or some simulators, too. More interested visitors were enabled sending information of the exhibition to their e-mail-addresses.

After successfully finishing our first lectures at the TTU in Tallinn and the virtual classroom yesterday, we (Michel and Corinna) used our free time today to become more familiar with our partner’s city and the Estonian culture. We took a city tour bus and had some nice views on the president`s residence, the song festival ground, the nature around the city centre, and the harbour. Afterwards we visited the Estonian open-air museum with about 100 farmsteads, mills, an old school and a chapel from 1699. All these original buildings showed us, how life in last 2 centuries looked alike. It was quite impressive to see how life changed during this period.
