Estonian Health Museum in Tallinn Old Town invites You to the Universe of Sleep!

Uneversum Uneversum

Sleep has a vital role in our life. We notice it especially when we miss it. A sleepless person is distracted and in a bad mood, forgets and has a high stress level. Moreover, the risk of getting sick is high. We miss the feeling of being really awake during the day and fall asleep during the night.

As a universal human need, sleep surrounds us everywhere – from the everyday life to fantasy and art. The exhibition “Universe of Sleep” is going beyond the borders of the museums and opens up the different aspects of sleep in a novel way.

Between 27.10.2023-7.01.2024 all the 3 exhibitions in 3 museums are open at once at the same time.

The Estonian Health Museum´ s sleep exhibition values ​​sleep as a reliever of physical, mental and emotional stress and restores capacity. We peek into the bedroom and see how people sleep and what happens in our bodies during sleep. We share good recommendations and practical tips for the best night’s rest for everyone who wants to take care of their sleep health. The virtual exhibition “Dream stories” invites the viewer to discover the more mystical side of sleep – dreams.
