Theatre House is a theatre inspired by a museum. In Theatre House people
change – grown-ups encounter their childhood, children meet fantasy. As
in life. As in theatre.
Theatre House is situated in the old town of Tartu, in a nicely
renovated 18th century wooden building. This unique theatre belongs with
Tartu Toy Museum and gets its inspiration from our childhood, games and
memories, dreams and fantasies.
In Theatre House you can watch performances with your family and
friends, act yourself, play games, try your hand on several crafts and
discover the exciting behind-the-stage life of a theatre. Upstairs is
the children’s studio, for children groups of several ages to take part
in theatre-themed programs. There is also a small souvenir shop and play
corner in Theatre House. The rooms can be rented for family events,
children parties, concerts, seminars and other causes.
In addition to Theatre House you can also visit the Toy Museum, where
you may see old toys and dolls throughout the ages and play in the
playroom. There is enough to see and do both in Theatre House and Toy
Museum for everyone.
