The National Sports Museum is a department within the National Sports Confederation and the SISU Sports Educators and has the task of collecting, caring for, managing and making available the cultural heritage of sports.

This museum is interactive and can be enjoyed by adults and children (starting from 1 year old, personally, I think the best time is when your little one can run, jump and have a balance, so she or he can try our various challenges in the Sports Lab). ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธThere are 2 discovery trails for children, that are soon be translated into English.

There is a Sports Lab on the ground floor, where visitors can try and test their strength ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช, speed ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ, coordination ๐Ÿคนโ€โ™€๏ธ, balance ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ, endurance, and flexibility. They can also learn about the importance of nutrition and the ways of healthy relaxation ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ. Do not forget to try to move the ball with your mind (Just like in the Technical Museum, but with much fewer people ;-) ).

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽจThere is a creative station on the ground floor as well, where children can draw or create small DYI games (at the time of the visit the topic was memory games).

The first floor has a special exhibition devoted to the importance of active childhood (inspired by a painting by Pieter Bruegel "Childrenโ€™s Games"). How many games can you recognize from the painting that we still play nowadays?๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Once explored inside, do not forget to check the outdoor play area. There is a chest of drawers with some sports objects and a Quiz card with challenges to take on and test own strength and stamina.

This Museum is stroller friendly and has a ramp and an elevator. It has free lockers, changing table in the bathroom on the ground floor. The small cafe has high chairs.
